Torture and rape of children in front of their relatives: UN investigators voiced evidence of Russian atrocities in Ukraine

Sexual violence and executions – for the first time the real facts of Russian war crimes in Ukraine were testified by experts from the UN.

An independent international group of investigators visited four regions liberated from the Rashists and was shocked, TSN reports.

«We were struck by the large number of executions in the areas we visited,» says the head of the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Ukraine, Eric Möze.

What the Russians did in Ukraine shocked the most experienced UN investigators. For the past few months, an international group of experts has been working in the liberated territories under the mandate of the organization’s highest human rights body. The first conclusions were presented at a meeting in Geneva. It is noteworthy that the perpetrators of the meeting of the Russian delegation were not present at it. «Based on the evidence collected by the commission, we came to the conclusion that war crimes were indeed committed in Ukraine,» Miose assured.

During this time, the investigators managed to visit 27 cities and towns in Kyiv region, Chernihiv region, Kharkiv region and Sumy region. And they interviewed about one and a half hundred victims who were mocked by the occupiers. Beatings, electric shocks and forced stripping naked in remand cells. This is not yet a complete and not the worst list of atrocities. «The victims were previously detained, there were visible traces of torture on their bodies, their hands were tied, they had gunshot wounds to the head and their throats were cut,» the commission states.

The commission will once again testify that any assurances by Russia that they do not touch civilians should not be believed. «A number of attacks that we investigated were carried out without distinguishing between civilians and combatants. We are talking about strikes with cluster munitions or rocket salvo systems and airstrikes on populated areas,» Miose insists.

In the list of war crimes of the aggressor, a separate item – on a sexual basis. According to the UN, the youngest Russian victim is only 4 years old, the oldest is 82. «The commission documented cases of rape, torture and illegal imprisonment of children. There are examples of cases when relatives were forced to witness crimes,» the commission said.
