Zelensky attacked Amnesty International after a critical report on the Ukrainian military

DUkrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has hit out at Amnesty International after criticizing the tactics of the Ukrainian military. The human rights organization wants to “give amnesty to the terrorist state (Russia) and shift responsibility from the aggressor to the victim,” Zelenskyj said in his daily address on Thursday.

The president called Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine “unjustified, aggressive and terroristic.” “If someone makes a statement that puts the victim and the assailant on an equal footing, if some things about the victim are analyzed and the actions of the assailant are ignored, it cannot be tolerated.”

In a report released on Thursday, Amnesty International accused the Ukrainian military of unnecessarily putting civilians at risk with its military tactics. “Repeatedly, soldiers were driven from residential areas,” said Janine Uhlmannseek, Europe and Central Asia expert at Amnesty International Germany.

The Ukrainian action is a “violation of international humanitarian law” that is not justified by a “Russian war of aggression in violation of international law.”

Amnesty clarified that Ukraine’s security strategies “in no way” justify “indiscriminate attacks by the Russian military with civilian casualties”. The human rights organization has described Russia’s attacks as “war crimes”.
