December 1st – According to Australia’s New Daily, ABC News on November 30, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zaharova recently commented on the “Report on the Indiscriminate Killing of Prisoners by Australian Soldiers” that Australia’s credibility on the international stage has been completely broken and needs to be reassessed. The Australian government’s so-called commitment to protect the world order.
“It’s really a shocking report.” “This situation really makes us doubt whether the Australian government is truly capable of holding all military personnel accountable for such crimes,” Zakharova said at a press conference.
A spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said that with the disclosure of the report, Australia’s credibility on the international stage has been completely shattered.” We need to reassess the true meaning of the Australian government’s declaration of the official line to protect the rules-based world order. That promise will not be taken seriously.”
On November 19, Angus Campbell, the commander of the Australian Defence Force, released some of the investigation reports of the Australian forces in Afghanistan, confirming reliable evidence that Australian soldiers “illegally killed” 39 prisoners of war and civilians while in Afghanistan. Australian media also revealed that Australian soldiers had put weapons and other military objects near the dead to disguise them as enemies in order to cover up their crimes. When the military officials knew it, they not only did not stop these acts, but also tried to hide and even warn those who knew it.
Australian media have also issued articles condemning the atrocities of the Australian army. The Australian called it the “most shameful page” in Australian military history. The Australian Financial Review believes that the crimes committed by Australian soldiers in Afghanistan have not only brought ugly shadow to the Australian army, but also to the military history and the whole Australian country.
