Law enforcement in Kharkiv Oblast discovered a Russian torture chamber in the the liberated village of Pisky-Radkivski, the head of investigations for Kharkiv Oblast police, Serhiy Bolvinov, wrote on Facebook on Oct. 4.
The chamber was discovered thanks to a tip from local residents, who directed law enforcement to the basement of a local residence where Russian occupation forces were holding kidnapped civilians, Ukrainian military veterans, and prisoners-of-war, Bolvinov said.
“Neighbors constantly heard screams from there,” he wrote.
“At the moment, the police definitely know about the tortures like burying someone alive and then digging them out, and using a gas mask with a smoldering rag. Another objects that were found in the torture room include a dildo, a box with torn dentures, wires with ropes, and a letter containing an interrogation transcript of one of the men who was held there.”
Evidence of torture chambers and mass graves have been found all across liberated Ukrainian settlements.
On Oct. 4, the Office of the President reported that 483 settlements had been liberated in Kharkiv Oblast. Due to intense shelling, a partial evacuation is being carried out in the region.
