Putin’s fanatical soldiers today opened fire on innocent protesters demonstrating in the Russian-held city of Kherson.
The latest war crime committed in Putin’s illegal invasion of the country reportedly occurred when Kremlin-backed forces opened fire and threw stun grenades at the crowd.
Video footage from social media showed civilians running from the city’s Freedom Square.
Several people were said to have been injured when witnesses reported hearing the sound of automatic gunfire.
Meanwhile, EU leaders have condemned the Russian attack on Mariupol as “a massive war crime”.
It comes as a number of member states continue to push for sanctions against Moscow’s key energy sector.
At the start of a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday, Josep Borrell said: “What is happening now in Mariupol is a massive war crime that is destroying, bombing and killing everything.”
