new Delhi The situation in Ukraine has remained tense since Russia’s offensive a month ago. In Ukraine’s Ivankiv city, which is 50 miles from the capital Kyiv, young girls were forced to cut their hair short to avoid rape by Russian soldiers. The city’s deputy mayor, Maryna Beschastna, said young girls resorted to shortening their hair to appear “less attractive”, as a way to avoid being raped by captured Russian soldiers.

 

Beschasta described the brutality of Russian soldiers and said that two teenage sisters were raped in a village in the area. She Said Women Were Pulled Out Of Their Basement By Their Hair A Teenage Two Sisters

“Women were pulled from their basements by their hair, so that they could misbehave with them. Girls started to cut their hair short to be less attractive, so no one looks at them anymore,” Beschsta said as quoted by ITV News.

“There was one case in a village, two sisters were raped…girls of 15 and 16…children,” she said.

Ukrainian authorities and Western officials have repeatedly accused the Russian military of atrocities in the war that began with the February 24 offensive. More than 4 million Ukrainians have fled the country, and millions more have been displaced. Some of the most gruesome evidence has been found in the cities around Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, from where Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces had withdrawn in recent days.

In Buka, Mayor Anatoly Fedoruk has said investigators found at least three sites of mass shootings of civilians and were still finding bodies in yards, parks and city squares – 90% of whom had been shot. Russia falsely claimed that the scenes were staged in Buka.

On Friday, activists pulled corpses from a mass grave near a church under a rain of spit, laying bags of black bodies in rows in the mud. According to a statement from the Office of Prosecutor-General Irina Venediktova, about 67 people were buried in the grave.

“Like the massacre in Bucha, like many other Russian war crimes, the missile attack on Kramatorsk should be one of the charges in the tribunal,” Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
