The Ukrainian deputy prime minister and head of Digital Transformation, Myjailo Fedorov, assured that the Facial recognition technology and artificial intelligence have already made it possible to find and identify many of the perpetrators of murders in Bucha and Irpin.
“Today, technology makes it possible to find everyone who has been captured at least once by a target. And considering how much they like to hang photos on the internet and the number of cameras in cities and houses, we will solve this question very quicklyFedorov was quoted as saying by the Unian agency.
He specified that “in fact, many murderers who terrorized civilians in Bucha and Irpen have already been found.” “In a short time, we will establish all the information about these people: their social media profiles, where and with whom they serve and live,” he said.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense has begun to use the Clearview AI facial recognition technology to recognize Russian invaders, combat disinformation and identify the dead, says Unian.
Clearview AI, an American facial recognition company, offers software to businesses, law enforcement agencies, universities, and individuals, and its database has 10 billion photos and more than 2 billion images from the Russian social network VKontakte.
Meanwhile, the Verkhovna Rada commissioner for human rights, Lyudmila Denisova, denounced in a statement on Facebook, collected by Unian, that in Bucha “they shot people point-blank” and “tortured to death not only adults, but also children”.
The Ukrainian ombudsman added that, according to the survivors, the forces of the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadirov, set up “an authentic torture chamber” in his headquarters. “According to the city authorities, there are currently a total of 360 civilians killed in Buchaincluding at least ten children,” he specified.
He added that in the liberated village of Makirov, in the kyiv region, they have found 132 shotboth in mass graves and isolated bodies, and that locals found a car shot with a family in the woods at the exit from Hostomel to Irpin.
Denisova appealed to the UN Commission of Inquiry into the human rights violations during the Russian military invasion of Ukraine and the mission of experts created by the Member States of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) within the framework of the Moscow Mechanism to take into account these acts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
He added that actions of this type committed by Russian troops “fall within the definition of ‘genocide’ according to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and Article 6 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court“.
