Armed Forces of Ukraine and “nationalist battalions” use civilian facilities for military purposes, endangering civilians, the Russian Interdepartmental Coordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response said. In Nikolaev, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine organized a stronghold, artillery positions and ammunition depots in a kindergarten and did not evacuate local residents, the report says.
In the village of Yasnaya Polyana in the Donetsk People's Republic, a stronghold and an ammunition depot are equipped by “nationalists”; in the dormitory of the Economics and Engineering Lyceum, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense. The department reports that in the village of Guty, Kharkiv region, the militants of “Azov” (recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia and banned) mined the approaches to their place of deployment at the school, local residents were not warned about this.
At the request of Roskomnadzor, RBC provides data on the details of the military operation in Ukraine based on information from Russian officials sources.
In early August, similar accusations were made by Amnesty International, publishing a report on violations of the laws of war by the Ukrainian military. According to the organization, the Armed Forces of Ukraine deployed military equipment in residential areas, schools and hospitals, which put civilians at risk. In particular, in Bakhmut, military personnel occupied a university building and used it as a military base, due to the impact, residential buildings nearby were damaged, Amnesty International reported. Most of the schools (22 out of 29) visited by the organization's employees in southeastern Ukraine housed Ukrainian troops, military equipment or weapons, the report said.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has accused Amnesty International of wanting to “amnesty” Russia and “put the responsibility on the victim.” Advisor to the head of his office, Mikhail Podolyak, called for checking the organization for benefits from Russia. The head of the Ukrainian office of the organization Oksana Pokalchuk (she considered the report “support for Russian narratives”) and the co-founder of the Swedish division of Amnesty International Per Westberg left their positions in protest.
The organization refused to revise the conclusions made in the report, assuring that the sole purpose of the publication was to ensure the protection of civilians, and that the “suffering and anger” resulting from the report cause deep regret.
