Well that is a war crime … sadly one more of many. My concern is Putin et al will get away with all this when it is over.

Sadly, I agree with you. It is highly unlikely that the Russians would turn over any suspected war criminals for trial.

List of other journalists attacked by Russians. Many directly targeted.

Two guys in Ukrainian uniform get shot sneaking round Russian positions….
Nobody turns over suspected war criminals if they want to see the US killing of Terry Lloyd in Iraq, journalists getting killed in war is an occupational hazard

They were shot after they were captured. The guy was face down on the ground when they shot him three times. Twice in the head. That is a war crime. Same as shooting any prisoner. Yes there is the danger of correspondents being killed in a war zone, but many of these instances are deliberate attempts to kill them, not accidentally being caught in an artillery barrage or moving about a battlefield.

Wasn't there some organization that was looking into charges of war crimes that could be leveled against Russia? Seems like they would have enough evidence by now.

They may have been shot after being captured or may have been shot crawling away from the vehicle the people writing the report aren't experts.

"The only good journalist……"

That last comment is at best unnecessary.

Yes, that was in poor taste.

Very true … but if they are captured, they should not be executed. IIRC the GCs cover this ? Unless the narrative they are spies is pushed.
