The Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Dmytro Lubinets has claimed that there is evidence of other executions of Ukrainian military prisoners, besides Oleksandr Matsiyevskyi
Dmytro Lubinets shared the information on Telegram.
"The execution by the Russian military of Ukrainian prisoner Oleksandr Matsievskyi after the phrase "Glory to Ukraine" is, unfortunately, not an isolated case in this terrible war of aggression," he said.
The ombudsman also claimed that Ukraine has evidence of other executions of Ukrainian defenders in captivity, as reported by sources in the security forces.
"Russians execute openly and cynically. With the consent of the commanders and with the confidence that they will avoid punishment," added Dmytro Lubinets.

It was a sniper of the 163rd battalion of the 119th separate brigade of the Chernihiv region, Oleksandr Matsiyevskyi. It was established that he was shot on December 30, 2022.
