In cold blood: crimes by Russian soldiers in Ukraine on trial

The spotlight is on war-crimes committed by Russian soldiers in Ukraine. Friday will see the first case being tried against a Russian soldier who is accused of killing an unarmed Ukrainian civilian. Sgt Vadim Syshimarin shot and killed a 62-year-old man in the head through an open car in window. He faces life in prison.

As the question of accountability heats up, a report in BBC tells the story of another cold-blooded killing.

Two unsuspecting men were shot by Russian soldiers. The killing was captured on CCTV cameras.

The footage is currently being investigated by Ukrainian prosecutors as a suspected war crime.

The footage appears to capture the moment two soldiers arrived at a car dealership. Russian soldiers are seen talking, smoking with two men who have been identified as Ukrainian civilians running the establishment.

The soldiers then leave, turn around and shoot the two in the back.

As per reports, one of the men survived but later died of his wounds. As he bled to death in his office, Russians plundered the showroom, the footage shows.

Volodymyr Yavorskyy coordinator at the Center for Civil Liberties in Kyiv said that the observance of rules and norms in Shyshimarin's trial "will determine how similar cases will be handled in the future.”
