UNITED NATIONS, March 29. /TASS/. The United Nations believes that it is important to comply with the Geneva Convention on Prisoners of War in Ukraine, Spokesman for the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarric said, when asked to comment on reports of the torture of captive Russian troops by Ukrainian nationalists.
"We have not seen the videos that reportedly show mistreatment but, as a matter of principle, it is important that all detained military personnel be treated according to the Geneva Conventions," he noted.
Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier that those involved in the torture of Russian prisoners of war in Ukraine must be held accountable for their actions.
