The accused pleaded guilty in the first trial held to cover up war crimes committed by Russian forces in Ukraine.

As the number of Ukrainian soldiers who surrendered at the Mariupol Azoustal Works has reached 1,000, the issue of disposing of them has become an international concern.

The accused, Vadim Sisimarin, appears before the court in Kiiu, the capital of Ukraine.

A non-commissioned officer, Shishimarin, was put on trial on February 28 for the murder of a 62-year-old Ukrainian civilian.

At the judge’s interrogation, Shishimarin acquiesced to his crimes.

If found guilty of all charges, Shishimarin could face up to life in prison.

Ukrainian prosecutors say they have identified more than 11,000 Russian military war crimes so far and have arrested more than 50 suspects.

A group of soldiers appears with the Azoustal Works behind it, which has been turned into ruins.

These are the soldiers who survived more than 80 days in Mariupol and surrendered after the Ukrainian government decided to retreat.

Soldiers who have undergone a baggage check and body search will be transferred to hospitals or camps depending on their health status.

In three days, the number of Ukrainian soldiers who surrendered increased to 1,000.

The Ukrainian government is preparing to negotiate a prisoner-of-war exchange to bring in surrendered soldiers.

However, the world’s attention is focused on the process of handling prisoners of war as there are strong voices calling for trial in some parts of Russia.
