- Armed civilians without giving them a uniform. [Breach of Geneva Conventions](https://philarchive.org/archive/YVOUEA)
- Ukrainian special forces command said Russian artillerymen will no longer be taken prisoner and will "all be killed for being complicit in criminal orders". Killing surrendering soldiers is a [war crime](https://ihl-databases.icrc.org/customary-ihl/eng/docindex/v2_rul_rule47_sectionb). [Collective punishment](https://casebook.icrc.org/glossary/collective-punishments) is also one. Edit: they have since taken that statement back. I have not.
- Did not activate air raid sirens to [warn civilian populations](https://ihl-databases.icrc.org/applic/ihl/ihl.nsf/Article.xsp?action=openDocument&documentId=06805C92A0A4A7A1C12563CD0051C0F9) of artillery and air strikes. People have already died because of this; Russia gave warnings as per protocol which Ukraine did not relay in time.
- As per the discovery of biological labs near the border with Russia, there is a very serious possibility Zelensky is guilty of [producing biological weapons](https://www.un.org/disarmament/wmd/bio/1925-geneva-protocol/#:~:text=The%201925%20Geneva%20Protocol%20prohibits,force%20on%208%20February%201928.). The labs have been confirmed by the US gov, but no proof yet that they were meant for biological warfare.
- Forcing battles to happen in civilian zones, thus exposing them to danger and [preventing their protection](https://www.redcross.org/content/dam/redcross/atg/PDF_s/International_Services/International_Humanitarian_Law/IHL_SummaryGenevaConv.pdf).
- Possibility of using [child soldiers](https://ihl-databases.icrc.org/customary-ihl/eng/docindex/v2_rul_rule136), as the Ukrainian army is now training children to use AKs, during wartime.
- Ukrainian forces were (accidentally) caught using Red Cross vans to transport soldiers and materiel. The symbol of the cross itself can only be used by the organisation and is protected under the Geneva Conventions; it can [only be used by medical units](https://www.redcross.org/about-us/news-and-events/news/2020/red-cross-emblem-symbolizes-neutrality-impartiality.html) who must then be treated like civilians.
Feel free to contribute. (the list above only reflects crimes Zelensky himself can be responsible for, to the best of our knowledge based on information that comes out of Ukraine. This list is also not legal advice, as only a trial will be able to determine which crimes have been committed and who is responsible for them).

> This is also by the same think-tank who claimed that in their wargames the US would be able to win a confrontation with China over Taiwan around 2027 so don't get your hopes up that they would be able to connect what the data says for future prognostications.
Stonetoss is a Nazi cartoonist for context.
Of course he probably doesn't understand that the 'lethal aid' money that the USA is sending Ukraine is actually going to the owners of weapons companies in the USA.
*By the results of 2022, Vladimir Zelensky has achieved some unique and mostly tragic milestones. He has succeeded in reducing the population of Ukraine to the level it had 100 years ago, placed his country in the status of indentured servant to the West, and deprived his citizens of the most elementary comforts of modern civilization. What further “successes” can we expect Zelensky to achieve in his current position?*
New Israeli foreign minister Eli Cohen signaled a policy shift on Ukraine in his 1st speech hinting the new government will take a more pro-Russian line. He said he will speak on Tuesday with Russian FM Lavrov, the first such call since the SMO began. We'll see where this goes. Even as a Palestine supporter, Israeli politicians are known to be very rational and calculating. I personally think that this latest announcement, if followed through on, could be very significant
This pretty much sums up where the Russian ruling class is at right now. Their analysis is still muddled mainly due to a lack of dialectical materialism and suffering from frequent bouts of idealism, but it seems at least they understand which way the wind is blowing: the west is in decline while the global south is rising. It remains to be seen how dedicated they really are to the de-nazification of Ukraine.

*“This is a message we are conveying to the command of the Airborne Troops and the command of the AFU from the 3rd Airmobile Company of the Separate Airmobile Battalion of the 25th Secheslav Airmobile Brigade.
We were sent on a combat mission to hold separate combat positions. We did not receive proper armament and artillery support. As a result, 70% of the company was killed or wounded. We did not have and do not have combat equipment and proper armament. We did not even have the equipment to evacuate the injured, due to which several wounded did not survive.
We spent more than a month in the trenches transmitting coordinates never fired upon by artillery. Platoon sergeants fled their positions in the first days and were transferred by Chief of Staff Kipinach, now acting battalion commander.
We are demanding the transfer of the entire unit.”*
Someday I hope to go over how critical this "news" outlet is to the current Ukraine narrative, and their involvement in the Maidan.
Today they are on reddit whipping Imperialist support to their favorite audience.
On Dec, 18:
On the 3rd floor of the hospital building, where the Nazi rocket hit, there are sick children
The mother of a 9-year-old girl who recently had surgery ran away with her child to the basement when the Donetsk hospital came under Ukrainian shelling:
“We hid behind pillows, because the child had drains on her head, we couldn’t hide under the bed <…> She jumped to her feet in fright and said: “Won’t they save us?”, - said the girl.
Source referenced: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/russians-mistreated-kherson-youngsters-childrens-cell-says-ukraine-official-2022-12-14/
So, according to Reuters,
>""We have documented that the children were not provided with water, were given water every other day. They were practically not given food," Lubinets said.
>"They used psychological pressure. They told them their parents had abandoned them and would not return."...Lubinets did not provide evidence of his assertions. Reuters was unable to immediately confirm the veracity of his account."
First of all, the idea that the Russians had either the maliciousness or the patience to torture teenagers for such mundane things is ludicrous. Even under charges of espionage, suspects would likely be shipped elsewhere far away where they cannot be rescued by handlers (eg to Russia). Second of all, if this really happened, the Russians would have tried to conceal it, as the Imperial Japanese, who actually did do things like this, did near the end of WW2. They would have burned documents, evacuated personnel, killed witnesses, and blown up the buildings. The fact that the Ukrainians were able to claim these things with such detail is proof that Russia did not try to destroy any evidence, which proves that no such evidence existed in the first place. Lastly, there ARE NOT FUCKING PHOTOS OR VIDEOS OF THIS. NOTHING.

Given the precision of the Himars system, the following list demonstrates the purposeful, indiscriminate use of weapons that Ukraine declares to be used for military purposes.
"The Himars are a precision-guided weapon, equipped with an inertial guidance system and capable of reaching any target according to the coordinates transmitted by the U.S. satellite constellation.
According to open sources, 20 units have been delivered to Ukraine so far.

Ukraine is totally winning though. The UAF is killing 9000 Russian soldiers per cubic diamond hour^2^ per second and only using literally everything in the NATO stockpile to achieve this miraculous outcome.
