The UN investigators spoke with over 150 victims and witnesses and visited 27 towns and settlements where they also investigated graves as well as detention and torture centers.What the good is the UN for if given these findings the actual civilized members cannot use the body to either force Russia to cease their atrocities or face peacekeeping forces from the combined UN nations to stop them?
The team also looked into two cases of mistreatment of Russians by Ukrainian soldiers.
The commission's report highlighted several areas where Russian activities had been particularly harmful, including general, indiscriminate attacks on civilian areas, executions, torture and sexual and gender-based violence.
The commission reported that Russia's "use of explosive weapons with wide area effects in populated areas is a source of immense harm and suffering for civilians" and that a number of attacks "had been carried out without distinguishing between civilians and combatants," including with the use of "cluster munitions or multi-launch rocket systems and airstrikes in populated areas."
The statement cited 16 towns and settlements where there are ongoing investigations into executions, with "credible allegations" of many more cases.
There were "consistent accounts of ill-treatment and torture" from Ukrainian victims, some of whom said they had been moved to detention centers in Russia where they had been held for weeks. Some victims have reportedly disappeared.
The commission also presented testimonies of beatings, electric shocks and forced nudity by former detainees in Russian detention centers.
Commission chairman Mose also said they had found evidence of an unspecified number of Russian soldiers who had committed crimes of sexual or gender-based violence. Their victims' ages ranged from 4 to 82 years old.
I guess "never again" simply means "well, what do you expect ME to do(?)" yet again.
