The @nytimes obtained thousands of previously unheard Russian Air Force communications in Syria. Our investigation shows how Russia bombed four hospitals in just 12 hours.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/13/world/middleeast/russia-bombing-syrian-hospitals.html 

The Russian Air Force has has long been accused of bombing hospitals in Syria. Our visual investigation, which shows how their pilots executed strikes on Syrian hospitals, is now also available on YouTube with subtitles in Arabic and Russian.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCi-2-Flcxk 

We give some insight in how the @nytimes Visual Investigations unit matched and verified the cockpit tapes to the hospitals bombings in this @readercenter piece.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/13/reader-center/russia-syria-hospitals-investigation.html 

Citing “exceptional circumstances”, President Putin is pulling Russia out of a key element (Protocol I) of the Geneva Conventions that authorizes fact-finding missions into alleged war crimes against civilians.  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-17/putin-pulls-russia-out-of-convention-on-war-crime-probes
