Ukraine probes execution of POWs by Russian forces near Robotyne

A video depicting the shooting of two captured Ukrainian soldiers by Russian troops surfaced on social media on 10 July. The incident reportedly occurred in June 2024. Investigators suspect the involvement of Russia’s 70th Motorized Rifle Regiment, based in Chechnya.
