Also, the Association of Families of Azovstal Defenders asked the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN to intervene and prevent a fake tribunal against Azovstal defenders.

This is stated in the Telegram channel of the Association of Families of Defenders of Azovstal.

The families appealed to Volodymyr Zelenskyy and all international organizations, in particular, the guarantors of the safety of the defenders of Azovstal - the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN, with a request to condemn and prevent the holding of fake tribunals that threaten the fighters of the Azov regiment.

In particular, they stated:

1. An "international" tribunal is impossible in a "republic" recognized by the state only as pseudo-states as South Abkhazia and Ossetia. A propaganda show is being prepared, and no matter where it is - in Donetsk or Mariupol, it will not be recognized by anyone in the world.
2. The military personnel of Ukraine, who performed duties determined by the state and the law on the territory of Ukraine, cannot be condemned by other states, especially pseudo-powers that are not recognized by anyone. Such a "tribunal" will not have force in the legal field of Ukraine.
3. In general, the rights of prisoners of war, who are now the defenders of Azovstal, in particular the Azov regiment, are guaranteed by the 1949 Geneva Conventions. It notes that any infringement on the human dignity of prisoners of war is prohibited, as well as their conviction or punishment without a prior decision of a legal court. Consequently, all these demonstration shows with courts and tribunals are completely contrary to generally recognized international laws on the treatment of prisoners of war.

In addition, the Association asked to check all published information and not to spread fakes.
