The Ukrainian General Prosecutor’s Office announced on Monday that it had discovered four “torture sites” used by the Russians in Kherson during their occupation of this southern Ukrainian city until its recapture by kyiv troops on November 11.
“In Kherson, prosecutors continue to establish Russia’s crimes: torture sites have been established in four buildings,” the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office said on Telegram.
According to the prosecutor’s office, the Ukrainian investigators went to “four” buildings, including pre-war “pre-war detention centres”, “where, during the capture of the city, the occupants illegally detained people and brutally tortured”.
“Pieces of rubber truncheons, a wooden bat, a device used by the occupiers to electrocute civilians, an incandescent lamp and bullets (…) were seized”, added the same source, ten days after the resumption of Kherson by the Ukrainian army.
“Work to establish the places of torture chambers and illegal detention of people continues,” said the Ukrainian general prosecutor’s office, adding that it also wanted to “identify all the victims”.
Since the liberation of Kherson on November 11, kyiv has repeatedly denounced Russian “war crimes” and “atrocities” in the Kherson region.
Moscow has, at this stage, not reacted to these accusations.
