There are constant reports of the brutality of the Russian army from Ukraine. Every day Russian soldiers are targeting Ukrainian citizens. Russian soldiers are crossing all limits of a war crime. According to the report of The Sun, Ukraine’s Parliamentary Human Rights Commissioner Lyudmila Denisova has told that an 11-year-old boy was raped in front of his mother in the town of Butcha.
As Ukrainian forces carry out rescue operations in cities left from Russian captivity, heartbreaking stories are unfolding. This 11-year-old boy has been raped by Russian soldiers in front of his mother tied to a chair. She was forced to watch this horrific crime.
Before this, a 78-year-old woman, a 16-year-old girl and a small child were also raped. As rape cases are piling up in Ukraine, it is clear that Russia is using this as a weapon of war to break the morale of Ukrainian Citizens.
According to Denisova, a 14-year-old girl was raped by five Russian soldiers in Butcha, after which she became pregnant. At the same time, a 20-year-old girl was raped in Irpin city.
Recently, a 24-year-old Putin soldier not only raped a small child but also made a video of it and sent it to his Russian comrade. Inhuman acts of Russian soldiers are increasing in Ukraine.
A 31-year-old Ukrainian woman told Human Rights Watch that she was repeatedly raped by a 20-year-old soldier at gunpoint while she was hiding with her family in the village of Malaya Rohan.
Denisova said that the UN Human Rights Commission should take cognizance of these acts of the war crime of Russia. There is no place on this earth for such demons. Denisova wrote in her Facebook post that Article 27 of the Geneva Convention 1949, which ensures the protection of common citizens in times of war, has considered a heinous act like rape a war crime.
Russia is targeting children in the Ukraine war
According to Denisova, on April 8, more than 1 lakh Ukrainian children were kidnapped by Russian soldiers. Many of them were raped and smuggled illegally on the Russian border.
According to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, 121 Ukrainian children were killed at the start of the war.
According to the report of Human Rights Watch, incidents of rape and murder of civilians by Russian soldiers have been recorded. Incidents of heinous crimes like rape have come to the fore again and again in the Russian-held areas of Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Kyiv.
It is not even possible to describe the kind of vandalism and violence that is being reported, says the Director of Human Rights Watch for Europe and Central Asia.
