As per news report of NDTV, The Russian invasion has also led to a seismic policy change by Finland, whose leaders said yesterday the previously neutral nation must apply to join NATO "without delay" triggering a blunt warning of retaliation from the Kremlin. Throughout the 11-week conflict, Russian forces have been accused of committing atrocities including the killing of unarmed civilians, torture and rape. CNN and the BBC yesterday released what they said was security camera footage showing Russian soldiers with assault rifles shooting two Ukrainian civilians in the back. The two men appeared unarmed -- the footage showed the soldiers frisking them before allowing them to walk away at a business premises on the outskirts of the capital Kyiv. One man died on the spot, the other shortly after, according to the outlets. The killings took place on March 16 and are being investigated as a war crime, CNN said. AFP has not independently verified the footage.
