Russia Funded Torture Centers In Kherson, Investigators Reveal

  • The Kremlin funded at least 20 torture centers for Ukrainians in Kherson, which Russian forces occupied for many months before it was freed during a Ukrainian counteroffensive late last year, according to a new report.
  • The report from a Mobile Justice Team, which was formed as part of multilateral initiative of the State Department, European Union and United Kingdom to provide advice to Ukraine’s investigators, revealed Thursday that Ukrainian war crime inspectors found a direct link between torture chambers in Kherson and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government.
  • The team is made up of international and Ukrainian attorneys who travel throughout Ukraine to help prosecutors collect and analyze potential evidence of Russian war crimes and atrocities.
