The Russian General who has been nicknamed the "butcher of Mariupol" can be heard berating a junior officer for not cutting off the ears of a private who had been caught not wearing his uniform correctly, according to a chilling intercepted phone call.
Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, who is believed to be overseeing the attack on the city of Mariupol in Ukraine called for the private to have his "face messed up", and his "ears cut off".
In the audio clip, Mizintsev berated the junior officer for not disciplining the soldier and asked why the private was not "limping by now".
"Look at that scum standing there, frowning with his bovine eyes, showing me his unhappy face, his stinking mug,"
"Why is he still serving? And why should I have to waste my time with your scum? If you're the head of a unit, then step up to the plate."
"Why is his face not mutilated yet? Why hasn't anyone cut off his ears? Why isn't this moron limping yet,"
"At night, when he walks out, unknown assailants jump him. Just jump him over and over, beating him in the face with a bottle and then pouring another litre into it."
The release of this audio clip comes as Mizintsev was identified as the commander who is overseeing the attack on Mariupol which has seen the city deprived of food, water, and power, for a month during the violent attacks that have killed countless civilians.
The audio file was shared by Olexander Scherba, Ukraine's ex-Austrian ambassador.
