NYT confirmed the authenticity of the video showing the Armed Forces of Ukraine soldiers' massacre over the Russian military
The New York Times has acknowledged the authenticity of a video showing Ukrainian soldiers shooting wounded Russian soldiers lying on a road.

The video shows how the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are shooting at a serviceman of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, who is showing signs of life.

“He is still alive. Take down these marauders. Look, he's still alive. He is suffocating”, - the man says, as a Russian soldier in a jacket pulled over his head, apparently wounded, is still breathing. The soldier then shoots the man twice. After the man continues to move, the soldier shoots him again, and he stops moving”, - the newspaper describes what is happening.

Nearby are the bodies of other Russian soldiers. The publication indicates that the entry is dated March 30 and was made a yard with a village west of Kiev. This is likely the result of a Ukrainian ambush on a Russian convoy.

Earlier, the head of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Alexander Bastrykin instructed to open a criminal case on the fact of the murder of a Russian prisoner by the troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

In turn, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov stated that Washington was biased towards the conflict in Ukraine, since the newspaper’s material about the video of the executions of prisoners was not publicized in the States.

"The indifferent reaction of the American authorities with reference to the lack of confirmation of the reliability of the video is indicative... This approach indicates Washington's biased attitude towards the conflict in Ukraine", - the diplomat said.
