Quote: "The Russian occupiers are cynically continuing to violate international humanitarian law and deploy their military personnel in civilian buildings, using civilians as human shields.

Specifically, up to 1500 servicemen of the Russian occupying forces of Buryat origin were observed arriving in the settlement of Osypenko in Zaporizhzhia Oblast on 23 August, illegally quartered in civilian houses with local residents and on the territory of the local hospital."

Background: The Russians have begun to send home previously "evacuated" residents of the settlements located directly on the contact line. They intend to use them as human shields.
