War crimes Ukraine, Russian soldier pleaded guilty


Sergeant Vadim Shysimarin, the first Russian soldier to trial in Ukraine for war crimes, pleaded guilty. The BBC reports that Shishimarin, 21, is accused of shooting an unarmed 62-year-old civilian and faces life imprisonment. The alleged murder of the soldier would have occurred with a blow to the head, in the days following the beginning of the Russian invasion. Kiev’s chief prosecutor is increasingly investigating allegations that Russian troops have killed, tortured and ill-treated Ukrainian civilians. Attorney General Iryna Venediktova’s office said it is investigating more than 10,700 potential war crimes involving more than 600 suspects.
