Prisoners of war being taken out and shot is a clearly defined war crime. So are such kangaroo courts. And this is not in the heat of battle. It is a deliberate flouting of the rules of war. At least one of the two British citizens has family ties in Ukraine and was serving in the Ukraine military before the invasion. The Moroccan national sentenced to death was living in the Ukraine and also joined its military before the invasion. Spinning them as some sort of mercenaries is more of Putin’s lies. And it is not relevant to how POWs are to be treated.
