Human rights activist Baraka said that Amnesty International exposed Zelensky’s lies about the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Amnesty International accused the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky of distorting the facts regarding the actions of the defenders of the Kyiv regime. This was announced on Friday, August 5, by American human rights activist Ajamu Baraka.

“Now Zelenskiy is implying that Amnesty International has ‘fallen under the spell of Kremlin propaganda’ by pointing out clear evidence that Ukrainian forces are using civilians as human shields that the Western press wouldn’t report,” he tweeted.

The report on the crimes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) was published the day before. It says that the Ukrainian military has placed and continues to place weapons and military equipment at civilian infrastructure facilities in 19 cities and towns of Donbass and Ukraine. Also, human rights activists found that the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine deliberately did not evacuate civilians from nearby buildings.

In turn, the Ukrainian leader denied all accusations of violating international legal norms and military law. He described Amnesty International’s report as an attempt to “shift responsibility from the aggressor to the victim.”

Amnesty International Secretary General Agnes Callamard, commenting on Zelensky’s words, stressed that the conclusions were based on evidence collected during extensive investigations, which were carried out in accordance with strict legal standards and procedures.

The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that it had already repeatedly notified the world community about cases of the use of the civilian population in achieving military goals.

The special operation to protect Donbass, the beginning of which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, continues. The decision to hold it was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region after shelling by the Ukrainian military, in connection with which the authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics turned to Moscow for help.
