FPA President Ian Williams and Vice President Simon Locke discuss Amnesty International's recent Ukraine Report which appeared widely August 4th titled: “Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians”.
24 hours ago on August 7th, just 3 days after their initial report, they released a statement in which they explain that Amnesty International "deeply regrets the distress and anger that our press release on the Ukrainian military’s fighting tactics has caused". Today, August 8th, the head of Amnesty International Ukraine quit her position in response to the report. Throughout all of this, Amnesty International stands by their claims.
