Zelensky Fury as Amnesty International Accuses UKRAINE of Endangering Civilians' Lives, in Propaganda Coup for Putin

President Volodymyr Zelensky savaged an Amnesty International report that accused his forces of endangering civilians by deliberately setting up bases in residential areas.

During his nightly video address to the Ukrainian people on Thursday, he accused Amnesty International of seeking to "shift responsibility from the aggressor to the victim."

The president added: "There cannot be, even hypothetically, any condition under which any Russian attack on Ukraine becomes justified. Aggression against our state is unprovoked, invasive and openly terroristic."

"And if someone makes a report in which the victim and the aggressor are allegedly the same in something if some data about the victim is analyzed and what the aggressor was doing at that time is ignored, this cannot be tolerated."

The Amnesty report, titled "Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians," was released on Thursday. It accused the Ukrainian military of having "put civilians in harm's way," while resisting the Russian invasion "by establishing bases and operating weapons systems in populated residential areas."

The report said these tactics "violate international humanitarian law and endanger civilians" by turning "civilian objects into military targets."

Researchers found evidence that Ukrainian forces had been "basing themselves in civilian buildings" across 19 towns and villages.

Fighting in Ukraine has been characterized by fierce urban combat, with Russian forces leveling large parts of cities such as Mariupol and Severodonetsk before they were captured.

Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International's secretary general, accused Ukrainian forces of "violating the laws of war" in the report.

She commented: "We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas.

"Being in a defensive position does not exempt the Ukrainian military from respecting international humanitarian law."

In an extraordinary move, the report was rejected by Ukrainian Amnesty International employees, who said they had opposed publication.

In a statement they said: "The Ukrainian office was not involved in the preparation or writing of the text of the publication.

"Representatives of the Ukrainian office did everything they could to prevent this material from being made public. We are very sorry that even after all possible arguments 'against' we were still not heard."
