To all the "guys" whining about war crimes, laws, conventions in the face of an invading country:

So, if someone shot your wife in the face, then laid down their gun and surrendered, you would follow the law and wait for the police to hopefully show up and arrest them? You wouldn't be legally allowed to shoot them.

I'm sure some here will love this, but it's a war crime.  "Both Russia and Ukraine are Parties to the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the 1977 Additional Protocols. Accordingly, they are bound by those instruments, as well as the customary international law of armed conflict."

Let's consider this. It seems like the argument that this was wrong goes something like this: if you're about to be blown up, you put your hands up and act like you surrender. If you're not about to be blown up, you just carry on engaging in combat operations. So you're not a fair target if your hands are up? How does that work? I need to change my magazine: I put my hands up, and I'm off limits, then I can go back to fighting when I'm done. Is that it? Is that a serious position that GD wants to defend?

While I dont agree with the way our tax money is used...to mostly line the pockets of people like Biden under the guise of helping Ukraine, the Ukrainians are not the bad guys, here. Eastern ones....maybe. But many of them are Russian transplants.

I personally know people from Ukraine. And have personal friends who have been there recently.

It's a mess, for sure. But to lump the average Ukrainian who wants to defend his country against russian invasion is misguided, from my perspective.

We would not want to be judged by our leader any more than those guys want to be judged by theirs.

*Putting lawyer hat on and pretending to be one*

TLDR - the "law" as it applies to this incident is about as clear as mud and open to interpretation by legal scholars

Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court pdf


Would anyone get prosecuted for this incident? Maybe but probably not. Would the drone operator/s get convicted if some authority did decide to prosecute? Probably not.

Were the drone operators retarded in publishing this? Yup.

The text of the statute would say "having laid down his arms or having no longer means of defence, has surrendered at discretion;" - In this particular instance, would the soldier who was wounded with the first drone grenade drop, having surrendered after being wounded, no visible weapons in hand be considered as "having no longer means of defense?" Article 8, 2(B)(VI)

Herein lies the problem - there was a video released recently about a Russian soldier "having surrendered" - BUT ended up chucking a grenade at the Ukrainians once they were close. Someone here for sure has a link to this video that they could probably post. That incident would violate Article 8 2(B)(IX) - "Killing or wounding treacherously individuals belonging to the hostile nation or army;"

So given recent events that Ukrainian forces have legitimately experienced, there is what I would suspect some leeway in regards to accepting "surrendering enemy soldiers." This is due to the interpretation of feasibility in accepting the surrender. In this incident, was it feasible for the drone operator to accept the surrender?

(edit to add - not related, but one of the interesting ones to me was the 2(B)(VIII) about the deportation of populations that Russia has for sure violated, didn't realize things about deportation of populations was specified in the statute)

Sure you can. There was a video where a Russian surrendered to a drone and they guided him to a surrender point. He would actually point and the drone would go up and down as a yes, or side to side as a no.

Iirc the Russians were shelling him too at one point.

Is the posted video cruel, yes. Is war cruel, again yes.

I agree.  The problem i see here is we are funding one side, and we as a nation
do adhere to the rules of engagement in combat, and the Geneva convention. By extension, anyone
we are supporting militarily/financially should be following those same rules.

I am not for funding Ukraine in general for a lot of reasons,  but since we are, then they can't be committing war crimes,  regardless of what the other team is doing.
