Kyiv — As Russia’s brutal war in Ukraine enters its 11th week, fresh allegations of war crimes by Russian troops are surfacing almost daily. In some of the latest, Ukrainian officials claim that Vladimir Putin’s forces attacked two schools in the country’s north, killing three people and wounded 12.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russian commanders “who give such orders” were “simply sick and incurable.”

Those repots surfaced as the first trial of a Russian soldier accused of a war crime in Ukraine began on Thursday: Russian Sgt. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, stands accused of shooting a 62-year-old Ukrainian civilian man in the head in the northeastern village of Chupakhivka in the early days of the war. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.
