At least “440 graves” found in Izium, Ukraine says

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense tweeted images on Thursday of a burial site in Izium, Kharkiv region, and said that “440 unmarked graves” had been discovered after the region was liberated from Russian forces last weekend.

Ukraine’s Center for Strategic Communications on Thursday said that some of the graves discovered after the Russians fled were “fresh” and that the corpses buried there were “mostly civilians.”

The cause of deaths and the circumstances around the burials are unclear; President Zelensky said that the “necessary procedural actions have already started.”
