UKRAINE’S Ministry of Defence shared an image of another alleged Russian torture chamber which was uncovered in the de-occupied territories near Kharkiv.

“Another Russian torture chamber in the de-occupied territories near Kharkiv,” Ukraine’s Defence wrote on Twitter on Monday, September 26.

“This is what a Russian electric chair looks like,” it added.

“Only this is not an instrument of justice for criminals, but a tool for Russian executioners and sadists who tortured Ukrainians.”

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) noted that they found the ‘torture chamber’ in the “recently liberated village of Lyptsi in the Kharkiv region.”

“The torture chamber, which the invaders called “basement”, was arranged in the building where the so-called “people’s militia of LNR” was located,” the SBU said.

They added: “Militants of this terrorist organization and Russian military illegally imprisoned their local residents who supported the territorial integrity of Ukraine and refused to cooperate with the enemy.”

According to the SBU, Russian soldiers used brutal torture on the prisoners, after which they forcibly took them to the territory of Russia.

“Within the framework of the criminal proceeding initiated under Part 1 Art. 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, investigative and operative actions are ongoing to identify the entire circle of persons who suffered from torture by the occupants, as well as all war criminals involved in the abuse of civilians,” the SBU said.

They added: “All collected evidence of war crimes committed by Russian servicemen will be subsequently handed over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague to ensure that no war criminal escapes responsibility.

“The operation was conducted by the SBU Office in Kharkiv region jointly with the National Police under the supervision of the Dergachiv District Prosecutor’s Office of Kharkiv region.”
