Ukraine war: Shocking picture shows swastika on corpse of rape victim

WARNING: Graphical Content

A Ukrainian lawmaker has shared a brutal image that she says shows a dead Ukrainian woman who was raped and tortured.

A swastika appears to have been engraved on the body, underscoring the apparent terror of the unknown victim’s final moments in her own blood.

Metro.co.uk has been unable to verify the picture emerging amid global outrage over the behavior of Russian soldiers on the outskirts of Kyiv.

There were widespread allegations of war crimes committed by Vladimir Putin’s forces after they withdrew from Bucha and Irpin.

Pictures show streets littered with what appear to be dead civilians, some with their hands tied behind their backs, suggesting widespread executions.

It’s unclear where the latest image came from, but Metro.co.uk has reached out to MP Lesia Vasylenko for comment.

The University College London graduate, an outspoken critic of Russia who evacuated her children from Kyiv, tweeted: “Tortured body of woman raped and killed.

‘I’m speechless. My mind is paralyzed with anger, fear and hatred.”

Ms Vasylenko, also co-chair of the UK-Ukraine Parliamentary Friendship Group, later tweeted, branding Russia a “nation of immoral criminals”.

She added: “Russian soldiers are looting, raping and killing. 10 (year old) girl with vaginal and rectal fissures.

“Women with swastika-shaped burns. Russia. Russian men did this. And Russian mothers raised them. A nation of immoral criminals.’

There have been countless allegations that Ukrainian women have been raped by Russian invaders, but the revelations from Bucha, a commuter town near the capital, have drawn disgust from Western leaders.

The bodies of children were among civilians who were maimed, killed and thrown into mass graves, reports said.

Video footage shows drivers swerving to avoid the bodies of people in ordinary clothing.

The mayor of the town, which had a population of around 37,000 before the war, about two-thirds the population of Woking, said yesterday that around 300 civilians had been buried in mass graves so far.

There are also fears that Russian soldiers are booby-trapping bodies to kill or injure those attempting to bury them.

Boris Johnson slammed the “despicable attacks” and vowed not to rest “until justice is done”.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has accused Russia of genocide and war crimes.

A woman returned to Bucha to discover her husband’s mutilated body in her garden.

However, there are concerns that similar scenes may have occurred on a larger scale in besieged Mariupol.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Defense Ministry has denied that Russian forces have killed civilians in Bucha, claiming videos and photos of dead bodies are “another provocation” by the Ukrainian government.

But Western nations appear to have long since given up believing Russia’s claims about the war – and reacted with anger to developments in Bucha.

Germany said those responsible for war crimes should pay up amid growing calls for Putin to be brought before the International Criminal Court and tried as a war criminal.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken described the images as a “punch in the stomach” as calls for further tightening of sanctions against Russia grew louder.

However, politicians again hesitated to call for military intervention.
