The footage has been shared across social media, although it was first posted on Telegram by Serhiy Haidai, the head of the Luhansk Regional Military–Civil Administration
“They really are orcs. Twenty-first century, occupied Popasna, human skull on the fence,” Haidai wrote. “There is nothing human about the Russians. We are at war with non-humans.”
The footage comes after Russia has been accused of committing war crimes.
\u201cTerrible photos and videos from Russia-occupied Popasna in Ukraine. Russians cut off a Ukrainian POW his head and hands, put them as trophies on the fence spikes in front of a house. The film and the photos of the mutilated body were made and posted by proud Russians themselves.\u201d
Previously, Russia tried to frame Ukraine for an attack that killed dozens of Ukrainian POWs by falsifying evidence.
In late July, an attack on the prison camp in Olenivka killed 53 people and injured 75. Upon learning of the mass killing, people called upon Amnesty International and the UN to investigate the matter.
Russia claims that Ukraine killed its own prisoners but an NBC News report indicates the detonation that killed prisoners came from inside the camp.
