Oleh Sinekhubov, the governor of Kharkiv, said two children were among the bodies. “Some of the dead have signs of violent death. There are corpses with their hands tied and signs of torture. They were found to have injuries from explosions, shrapnel and knives,” he wrote in his Telegram post.

Earlier today, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed Ukrainian claims of “war crimes” in Izium as “lies.”

Local residents have previously said some of the graves in the forest belong to people killed in a Russian airstrike.
