The declarations of the sister of the killed soldier

I’m 100% sure, this is my brother: it’s his eyes, his voice and the way he smoked a cigarette. This was written by journalist Sofia Kochmar-Tymoshenko, who collaborated with the BBC and Deutsche Welle, quoting Tymofiy Mykolayovych Shadura’s sister. According to Kochmar-Tymoshenko, other family members also recognized him, but at the moment they are asking for silence and respect. In order to find those responsible, the investigation department of the Security Service of Ukraine has opened an investigation under the country’s law against “violation of the laws and customs of warfare”, writes the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Andriy Kostin on Facebook. Kostin added that “even war has laws. There are rules of international law systematically neglected by the Russian criminal regime. Sooner or later the crime will be punished. All those involved will be held accountable to the law”.
