Amnesty International has set out to destroy its credibility this week by serving as a mouthpiece for Russian propaganda.

This is stated in the material of the British edition The Timesreports Ukrinform.

The publication notes that the legal obligations under the Geneva Convention for the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War are “not at all like blaming and vilifying the victims of aggression, which is what Amnesty does.”

Not surprisingly, the group’s Ukrainian office, which was not consulted, denounced these alleged findings, while the Russian embassy in London eagerly reproduced them.

The Times notes that the Ukrainian defenders are based in civilian areas, because the Russian occupiers are attacking them. This method of the Russians is already known from the fighting in Chechnya and Syria, as well as in Ukraine.

“Ukrainian forces are bravely confronting these invaders while trying to help civilians escape dangerous areas,” the article says.

It also notes Amnesty’s disregard for the realities of warfare and its misunderstanding of the content of international law.

The journalists also recalled that the human rights group had previously humiliated itself in front of the Kremlin by refusing to recognize Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny as a prisoner of conscience, before hastily overturning the decision after a flurry of international criticism.

“Obviously, Amnesty didn’t get anything out of this debacle. Secretary-General Agnes Callamard complained that the group had been criticized on social media, that it was some offended party, and that its frivolous feuilleton about Ukraine had the status of sacred scripture,” notes The times.

The publication emphasizes that although Kallamar would have resigned in any serious non-governmental organization, no means can save Amnesty’s reputation.

“When a respected humanitarian organization Amnesty now shows a pathetic indifference to oppression. Having shown her softness towards crime and her softness towards fascism, she must have the decency to leave the stage.

As reported, in a report published on August 4, Amnesty International said that the Ukrainian military, in an attempt to repel the Russian invasion, endangered the civilian population by establishing bases and deploying weapons in residential areas, including schools and hospitals.

At the Office of the President reacted to the reportstating that only the Russian army threatens the lives of Ukrainians, and the statements of human rights activists are nothing more than participation in Russia’s discrediting campaign against Ukraine.
