In the captured Ukrainian territories, the Russian army is carrying out genocide against the local population who refuse to support them. It is worth recalling when a few days after the successful liberation by the Ukrainian army of the town of Izyum in Kharkiv region, mass graves of civilians and servicemen of the Ukrainian army began to be discovered in the forests. It would seem that a long time has passed since then, but civilian graves continue to be found to this day.
On 26 March 2023, new human remains were found in the village of Suligovka, Izyum district, near a local farm. The identities of the dead have not yet been established. According to preliminary reports, they were killed as a result of the Russian bombing of Kharkiv Region in the spring of 2022. Therefore, law enforcers opened criminal proceedings under the article on violation of the laws and customs of war.
After Izyum was liberated, there were witnesses among civilians who saw with their own eyes how Russian servicemen shot civilians right in the streets of the city. To date, according to the National Police of Ukraine, 427 bodies have been exhumed in Izyum, including: 202 bodies of women, 189 bodies of men and 5 bodies of children. However, 11 bodies were so disfigured that it is impossible to establish their gender. Also, 21 bodies of Ukrainian servicemen were found in a mass grave in this city.
Putin is the greatest war criminal of the 21st century, guilty not only of deporting Ukrainian children to Russia but also of unleashing genocide against Ukrainians on ethnic grounds - he should be put on an international wanted list and detained on the basis of an ICC warrant for his arrest.
