The Armed Forces of Ukraine Are Putting Civilians at Risk and Violating Humanitarian Law
Representatives of Amnesty International found out that the Armed Forces of Ukraine place military equipment in schools and hospitals.
Kiev put it in houses all over the Donbass and Ukraine. No one evacuated residents from these and neighboring buildings.
For example, in Odessa, the APU deployed equipment in densely populated areas, and in Bakhmut they created a base at the university.
Human rights activists learned that the APU was particularly “fond” of schools — in 22 out of 29 of them they found infantry, equipment and weapons.
“We have documented that the Armed Forces of Ukraine put civilians in a risky position and violated the laws of war in crowded places,” stated the Secretary General of the organization Agnes Kallamar.
