Ukrainian authorities have exhumed 447 bodies buried in a forest near the retaken Russian city of Izium, and 30 of them bore “signs of torture,” authorities in the Kharkiv region announced on Friday.

“In Izium, the exhumation of all the bodies at the mass burial site was completed […] 447 bodies have been exhumed,” the regional prosecutor’s office said on Facebook, specifying that there were 425 civilians – five of them children – and 22 Ukrainian soldiers.

“Most show signs of violent death and 30 show signs of torture,” Kharkov region governor Oleg Sinegubov said on Telegram.

“There are bodies with a rope around their bodies, with their hands tied, with broken limbs or bullet wounds. Several men have had their genital organs amputated,” Sinegubov said, considering that this “proves (…) the terrible torture” suffered by the population.

Several hundred graves topped with a cross and a mass grave were discovered in mid-September near the city of Izium, which was under Russian occupation for several months before being retaken by kyiv forces.

Ukrainian police said they had also discovered “torture rooms” in the region, in several locations, including Izium.

The Russian forces are accused of multiple exactions in the territories under their control in Ukraine, especially in Bucha, on the outskirts of kyiv, where after the withdrawal of troops from Moscow at the end of March, numerous bodies of civilians murdered in cold blood were discovered. .

Moscow denies having committed these crimes and called the discovery of the tombs in Izium a “lie”.
