Ukraine will investigate video footage circulating on Russian social media, which Moscow says shows Ukrainian forces killed Russian troops who may have been trying to surrender.

“Of course the Ukrainian authorities will investigate this video,” Olha Stefanishyna, Ukraine’s deputy prime minister who oversees the country’s push to join the European Union, said on the sidelines of a security forum in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Stefanishyna, speaking late on Saturday, said it was “highly unlikely” that the short edited snippets show what Moscow is claiming.

On Friday, Russian authorities announced the opening of a criminal investigation based on snippets posted on Russian Telegram channels and broadcast on other social media, which present a confusing and incomplete picture.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova claimed the footage showed an “execution” and said Russia wants an international investigation.
