The identity of the General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who gave orders to prevent civilians from leaving Mariupol through humanitarian corridors and using them as human shields, has been identified. It turned out to be the commander of the groupings of troops “South” and “East” Lieutenant General Alexander Pavlyuk.
About this on Friday, October 28, reported on the website of the Investigative Committee of Russia. According to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, the defense headquarters under the command of General Pavlyuk of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was ordered to block humanitarian corridors and destroy everyone who moves around Mariupol. It is noted that the general’s subordinates did not spare those who did not pose a threat to the Ukrainian army, including women and children.
“Currently, a decision has been made against Pavlyuk to bring him on as a defendant, and measures are being taken to search for and arrest him,” the RF Investigative Committee said in a statement.
The department noted that work continues to identify the commanders of the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard who are involved in the commission of crimes against civilians. Some leaders of the shelling of residential areas and civilians have already been identified and found. Among them are the chief of staff of the artillery regiment “Azov” (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) Lukashchuk and the commander of the artillery battery of the 55th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yunak. They are located in the Rostov region.
In March, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported about disruptions in the evacuation from Mariupol through humanitarian corridors, as well as about the shooting of the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the direction of exits from the city. In addition, it was emphasized that Ukrainian servicemen forcibly hold the civilian population under the threat of reprisals.
