The owner of a mobile war hospital in eastern Ukraine has ordered his doctors to “castrate captured Russian soldiers.”
It comes as Ukraine said it would not accept ultimatums from Russia after Moscow demanded it stop defending besieged Mariupol.
Hundreds of thousands of civilians suffer from the Russian bombardments that devastate the port city.
Gennadiy Druzenko, 49, told Ukraine-24 channel about Russian prisoners of war: “I have always been a great humanist and said that a wounded person is no longer an enemy, but a patient.
“But now [I gave] very strict orders to castrate everyone [captured Russian] Men because they are cockroaches, not people.”

Around 500 doctors have worked with the Druzenko mobile hospital since 2014.
A trained lawyer, he set up the First Voluntary Mobile Hospital, which sends civilian doctors and nurses to the conflict zone near the separatist republics in eastern Ukraine.
He also told the famous Russian TV presenter Yevgeny Kiselyov on the Ukraine-24 channel: “Believe all the doctors who saved the patients – Russians will die here.

“Dying in great numbers.
“The, the [come here] will remember their nightmare on Ukrainian soil.
“Just as the Germans remember Stalingrad.”

The Russian investigative committee launched a criminal case into the comments, meaning that if Druzenko is arrested, he will face a trial under Russian law.
The committee’s chairman, Alexander Bastrykin, a former classmate of Vladimir Putin, launched a criminal case over his request for castration, which “violates the law and norms of medical ethics.”
He said: “The head of the project “Ukrainian Mobile Hospital” Gennady Druzenko called for violence against captured soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces live on a Ukrainian TV channel.

“He gave this instruction to the doctors of mobile hospitals.”
Druzenko is to be put on Russia’s international wanted list.
Mariupol has become a focal point for Russia’s attack on Ukraine, but attacks on the country’s second-largest city, Kharkiv, are also reported to have intensified on Monday.
The conflict has displaced nearly a quarter of Ukraine’s 44 million people from their homes, and Germany predicted the number of refugees could reach as many as 10 million in the future
Europe said Russia is using refugees as a tool and is ready to take further measures on top of existing sanctions to isolate Russia from global finance and trade.
The Russian military had ordered Mariupol residents to surrender by 5 a.m. local time Monday, saying those who did could leave while those who stayed would be handed over to courts run by Moscow-backed separatists .
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s government responded that it would never bow to ultimatums, saying cities like the capital Kyiv, Mariupol and Kharkiv would always resist occupation.

“There can be no talk of capitulation,” said Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk in Mariupol.
Russia’s invasion, now in its fourth week, has largely stalled, failing to capture any major city but massively destroying residential areas.
