RUSSIAN torturers have been accused of brutally shocking Ukrainian prisoners with a homemade electric chair and castrating their victims.
Horrifying evidence of new Russian war crimes, including mass graves and torture chambers, emerges in the newly liberated city of Izyum.
Vladimir Putin’s troops are accused of massacres during their occupation and as they fled in the face of lightning-fast Ukrainian advances that have liberated vast tracts of land.
Several Ukrainians have spoken of the fact that the Russians shocked anyone they suspected of helping the resistance with electric shocks.
Now chilling images have surfaced showing a chair attached to a piece of wood on the floor with a metal bar to hold it in place, with a hole in the wall next to it showing wires through.
The home-made electric chair was found in a room at the Izyum police station and is said to have been used by the Russians to torture Ukrainians.
The picture was posted by Taras Berezovets, who serves in the Ivan Bohun Brigade of the Ukrainian Army’s special forces and acts as the unit’s spokesman.
Berezovets said the Russians “tortured prisoners of war and civilians with electric shocks.”
He explained that the “chair is placed on a wooden platform” so that the torturer conducting the interrogation “can avoid electrocution.”
“The wires used to interrogate the prisoners are visible in the wall on the left,” he said.
He also released footage of another torture chamber, which he said held four Ukrainian prisoners per cell.
One cell was reserved for military prisoners and contained only one person, Berezovets explained.
At least 10 torture chambers were also found, where the local population was mistreated in deplorable conditions by the Russian occupiers.
In Izyum, locals said scores of men were being held in underground cells at the main police station.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said horror was the latest war crime inflicted on his country after the discovery of mass graves in Bucha and Mariupol following February’s Russian invasion.
Horror photos show bodies being dug up from around 450 graves near Izyum.
According to investigators, almost all of the bodies exhumed from the mass grave showed signs of torture – including violent castrations.
Yevheny Yenin, Ukraine’s first deputy interior minister, said: “We continue to find bodies with signs of violent death – there are many of them.
“These include broken ribs and fractured skulls, men with their hands tied, their jaws broken and their genitals severed.”
Kharkiv Region Governor Oleg Synehubov added: “Some of the dead show signs of a violent death. There are corpses with their hands tied and signs of torture.
“Explosion, shrapnel and stab wounds were also noted among the deceased.”
Harrowing details of the suffering inflicted on Ukrainians by the Russian occupiers during the Ukraine war have come to light.
Oleksandr Hlushko, 53, told the Times he was detained for five days after Russians suspected the former soldier of links with Ukrainian partisans.
His ribs were broken, he was hit on the head and flogged on the soles of his feet before being thrown out of a car and dumped on the curb.
The ordeal resulted in him being hospitalized for six weeks, and now he’s slurring his words as if he’s drunk.
“The first time they took me away, they beat me until I was a vegetable,” he said.
“Without the doctors, I wouldn’t be here today.”
He was also one of those who were electrocuted by the Russians using electrodes on his little fingers.
“I almost hit the ceiling the second time around,” he said.
Another man said he was left standing in excrement in a manure pit for 24 hours before being taken to police cells where his ribs were broken.
