The Russian Federation may involve prisoners of war in the war against Ukraine.
This was reported by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).
According to the institute, it is possible that Russian troops are preparing to forcibly mobilize Ukrainian prisoners of war to fight on the side of Russia, which would be a violation of the Geneva Convention on Prisoners of War.
"On September 24, the Russian state media reported that the Ukrainian prisoners of war held in the Olenivskyi camp verbally "asked" the authorities of the "DPR" to allow them to fight in the "Bohdan Khmelnytskyi" volunteer Cossack battalion. If Russian or Russian intermediary forces forced Ukrainian prisoners of war to fight , this would be a violation of the Geneva Convention on Prisoners of War, which stipulates that "no prisoner of war may at any time be sent to or detained in areas where he may be exposed to the fire of a combat zone," the statement said.
