More than 700 bodies have been found in liberated Kharkiv, Donetsk, and Kherson territories, says Ukrainian Prosecutor General


Prosecutor General of Ukraine Andriy Kostin says that, during the past two months, the bodies of more than 700 Ukrainians have been discovered in the liberated territories of Kharkiv, Donetsk, and Kherson.

“More than 700 bodies were found in the deoccupied territories of the Kharkiv, Kherson, and Donetsk regions – and that’s just in the last two months. Nearly 90 percent of them were civilians. We’ve identified more than 20 sites where Ukrainian civilians were illegally detained and tortured,” Kostin said during a Ukrainian television broadcast on November 19.

According to Kostin, most of the sites where Ukrainians were killed are located in the Kharkiv region, most of which Ukrainian Armed Forces liberated in September. “In practically every city and every town in the Kharkiv region we found sites where peaceful Ukrainian civilians were killed,” said the prosecutor general. He added that Kherson is “the same situation,” but that “work has just started” there.

In times of war it is impossible to immediately verify information disseminated even by official representatives of parties to the conflict.
