Both warring sides in eastern Ukraine are perpetrating war crimes almost daily, including torturing prisoners and summarily killing them, the Amnesty International rights group said in a report Friday.
Ukraine is open to considering proposals to place a ballistic missile-defence system on its territory to ward off the risk of attacks from Russia, a senior Ukrainian defence official said Wednesday. So far no one has offered.
The men say they are Russian soldiers who were captured and wounded while on active duty in the rebellious east, Ukrainian authorities say they are definitive proof that Russia is at war in Ukraine, and Moscow hotly denies the claims.
Two wounded Russian soldiers captured while fighting in war-torn eastern Ukraine have been transferred to a hospital in Kyiv, Ukrainian officials said Monday as Moscow once again firmly denied any involvement in the fighting.
