The co-founder of the Swedish branch of Amnesty International, Per Wästberg, announced that he is leaving his post because of Amnesty’s scandalous report on the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Svenska Dagbladet reports.

“I have been a member [of Amnesty International] for almost sixty years. It is with a heavy heart that I end my long and fruitful cooperation due to Amnesty’s statements regarding the war in Ukraine,” he said.
