Spokesperson of the General Staff Vladyslav Seleznyov informed this.
‘These guys aren’t war prisoners, we cannot recognize them as war prisoners due to legal status of our country today. But they are terrorists who have committed crime because they have killed servicemen participating in ATO. So that Ukrainian competent investigators have task to establish degree of involvement of each of them in the murder of Ukrainian military’, – he said.
Security Service of Ukraine informs that it will try prisoners for terrorism.
