ICYMI: Massive Number of Ukrainians Now in Russian ‘Camps’


Throughout the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there have been whispers of similarities to the atrocities of the second world war, and the latest reports out of Kyiv have only bolstered these concerns.

First and foremost, there is the invasion itself, which Putin and his surrogates have repeatedly characterized as a reunification with the Russian Empire – much in the way that Adolf Hitler believed that the ethereal Germanic boundaries were larger than the map showed.

And then there are the war crimes, and plenty of them to choose from.  The most recent retelling of the Kremlin’s crimes suggest that tens of thousands of Ukrainians currently being held in Russian “camps”.

Tens of thousands of Ukrainians are held in camps on Russian territory that were created according to the Nazi model, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said.

He said this in his virtual address to the Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

The scope of the crime was nigh unimaginable.

“More than 500,000 Ukrainians have been deported to Russia by force, and tens of thousands stay in Russian camps that were created according to the model of Nazi camps. Nobody knows how many people will survive there, but everyone knows who is to blame for that,” Zelensky said.

With several international investigations having already commenced on the subject of Russia war crimes, there is no doubt that these claims will also find their way into the ongoing probes.
