Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been replete with human rights abuses on both sides. Yesterday, Russia began its advance in to the East Ukrainian city of Mauripol. The conflict is expected to be extremely bloody on both sides with Russians using Chechen soldiers, who are known for their human rights abuses, and Ukrainians using the far-right Azov Battalion, which is alleged to have committed war crimes in the Donbass region.
Today, the Russian military entered the Ukrainian city of Konotop and began neogotiations for surrender with city officials. The Russian soldier who was leading the negotiation party held two grenades above his head as he walked down the streets to meet the mayor of the city, presumably to deter citizens from attacking him.
