Catch up quick: The report said Ukrainian forces exposed civilians to Russian attacks by basing themselves in residential areas, schools and hospitals.

  • The report alleged the tactics were a violation of international humanitarian law, which requires all combatants to "avoid locating, to the maximum extent feasible, military objectives within or near densely-populated areas."
  • “We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas," Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s Secretary General, said in the report.
  • "Most residential areas where soldiers located themselves were miles away from front lines and viable alternatives were available that would not have endangered civilians," the report stated.
Zelensky is a scumbag employing terrorist state tactics in the conflict.

An altered state
Russian forces have embedded themselves in the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, which has six nuclear reactors . They have put both supplies and weapons inside the plant’s perimeter and are even launching artillery attacks on Ukrainian positions from the compound. Any counterattack by the Ukrainians risks a major nuclear catastrophe.

Putin is a scumbag megalomaniac willing to destroy the world to build his legacy.

I'll agree that Putin is the much bigger scumbag. While I understand that Zalensky is fighting against most unprovoked invaders, Ukrainian fighters should not be based in residential areas and hospitals.
