Two evacuation buses found shot by occupants in Kharkiv region
Russian assassins shot up two evacuation buses carrying civilians in the village of Borovaya, Izyum district.
The occupiers committed the atrocity on 14 April 2022, the second day of the occupation of the village.
The investigation conducted an exhumation and found that at least nine people died that day: they were burned alive in a bus. 13 people survived and were taken to a local hospital.
The Kharkiv regional prosecutor's office said:
The Russian military shot up two evacuation buses with civilians. People were on their way to their homes in the Luhansk region. The enemy insidiously, cynically and deliberately began firing large-calibre machine guns and small arms at the buses with people.
On 24 January 2023, prosecutors, together with investigators from the Kharkiv regional office of the Main Investigative Department of the Kharkiv Region, exhumed all the dead. The remains of the corpses have now been sent for forensic medical examinations.
Under the procedural supervision of the Kharkiv regional prosecutor's office, a pre-trial investigation was launched into a criminal case over a violation of laws and customs of war, combined with premeditated murder (part 2 of Article 438 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code).
