Ukrainian police found torture chambers and mass graves in the city of Kherson after Russian troops withdrew. According to Ukrainian Interior Minister Denis Monastyrskyi, there are eleven sites where the Russians have held people, and in four of them, prisoners have been tortured.
Police are now investigating the scene, interviewing witnesses and examining the bodies, 63 of which were allegedly found in the Kherson region after Russian soldiers left, according to the interior minister.
“We know that the search is just beginning and that other torture chambers and graves may be discovered,” said the person involved.
Similar torture chambers have been found in other areas where Russian soldiers were expelled, such as Kharkiv. However, the existence of such chambers has never been independently confirmed.
The Ukrainian army retook Kherson from the Russians in early November. Landmines were laid by the Russian army in many parts of the city.
