Corpses ‘with signs of torture’ found at Izyum mass grave – live

The bodies discovered in a mass grave in the eastern Ukrainian city of Izyum are mostly civilians, with some showing signs of torture, Ukrainian authorities said.

On Thursday, Ukrainian officials said they had found a mass grave containing 440 bodies in Izyum and said it was evidence of war crimes committed by Russian troops. Russia has not publicly commented on the matter.

The regional governor, Oleg Synegubov, said the people had met a “violent death” and there were bodies with their hands tied behind their backs.

Earlier on Friday, Police Chief Ihor Klymenko said a preliminary estimate of the bodies showed most of them were civilians.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video address last night that Russia “leaves death everywhere” and that it “must be held accountable”.

On Friday, he claimed entire families had been buried and said people were being tortured, comparing the aftermath to Russia’s withdrawal from Kiev months ago.
