In the article “Crimes of War” By Patricia Smith, published on OCTOBER 31,2022 I learned how Russians are committing war crimes against Ukrainian citizens. One of the reasons why Russians are killing people is because they are trying to take over parts of Ukraine and are facing lots of resistance. Lots of troops lost their lives trying to reach the capital of Ukraine, and the Russians took out the frustration on the citizens by tying them up and executing them. The Russian army also launched missiles on hospitals and schools which is another war crime they committed on ordinary people. 

My reaction to this is sad because Ukraine has a small army compared to Russia. Ukrainian citizens have to rely on their army to help them from the war crimes.  My thoughts on this are negative because the citizens in Ukraine are trying to get shelter from the war and the Russians are just blowing up schools and hospitals where people are. In my opinion I think that Ukrainians should try to live in a basement or a shelter underground, so they have a higher chance of surviving.

What would you do if there was an army hunting ordinary people?
