In a message to the Telegram, Arestovich warned Ukrainian forces and militias that “the abuse of prisoners is a war crime for which there is no amnesty under martial law and there is no statute of limitations.”

He added: “I would like to remind everyone that we are a European army.”

“We treat all prisoners in accordance with the Geneva Conventions, regardless of our personal feelings,” said the adviser to the Ukrainian president.

In the five-minute video that first came to light by the Times of London, Russian prisoners of war appear to have been shot in the knees by Ukrainian soldiers.
