Oksana Pokalchuk, head of Amnesty International Ukraine, resigned after yesterday’s report in which the NGO accuses the Ukrainian forces of endangering the civilian population by setting up bases and using weapons in built-up areas, including schools and hospitals, thus violating ‘international humanitarian law. Pokalchuk, quoted by The Kyiv Independent newspaper, said there was no adequate reaction from the organization’s leadership to opposition to the contents of the report by Amnesty’s Ukrainian office.

True, Pokhalchuk pointed out, that Amnesty International representatives eventually asked the Kiev Ministry of Defense for an answer, but they did so by allowing insufficient time to explain her point of view. As a result, the organization unwittingly created material that sounded like support for Russian narratives. By seeking to protect civilians, this research has instead become a Russian propaganda tool, added Pokhalchuk
