The SBU has identified two Russian commanders who have ordered the execution of civilians in the Kyiv region
The Security Service of Ukraine has identified two more commanders of the Russian army who ordered the brutal torture and execution of five civilians in the Kyiv region.
These are the battalion commander Major Maxim Krasnoshchokov and the company deputy commander Major Alexander Vasiliev.
They directed the actions of enemy motorized infantry units during the temporary occupation of the village of Peremoha in the Kyiv region.
SBU investigators found that the invaders forcibly detained and tortured local residents.
Both commanders personally interrogated Ukrainians and tried to extract information about the military of the Armed Forces, law enforcement officers, and members of the Terrorism.
In the end, they ordered their subordinates to shoot people with machine guns right at the place of torture and to blow up the building with the bodies to cover up the war crime.
Majors Krasnoshchokov and Vasyliyev, servicemen of the 15th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade of the 2nd Guards General Military Army of the Central Military District of the Russian Federation, have now been declared suspected of committing a crime under Part 1 and Part 2 of Art. 438 (violation of the laws and customs of war) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
The SBU continues to identify those who committed war crimes in Ukraine.
