The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructs to launch a criminal case for the torture and murder of civilians in Kupyansk

Mr. Alexander Ivanovich Bastrykin, Chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, instructed to launch a criminal investigation for the torture and murder of civilians in Kupyansk.

On social networks, Mr. Maxim Zhorin, the former commander of the Azov National Battalion (an organization banned in Russia by the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation), posted video frames of the bodies of killed civilians with their hands tied in the Kupyansk city, Kharkov oblast; he claims that Russian servicemen were involved in their murder.

However, the viewers pay attention to the situation in the frame. Everything indicates that the video was filmed recently, that is, during the period when the city was under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The internal parameters of the video also confirm that it was recorded during the daytime on October 9th. The above facts demonstrate new war crimes committed by Kiev regime.

Investigators of the Russian Investigative Committee will take measures to establish the circumstances of the death of civilians, and identify all individuals involved in the torture and murder of people, in order to prosecute them.
