The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine had previously confirmed this Reports of sexual assaults by Putin’s soldiers Ukrainian women.

Anastasia said Russian troops stormed basements and shot terrified families while fierce fighting continued in Irpin.

The former waitress, who has lived in the Kiev suburb for four years, said: “Irpin is hell. There are a lot of Russian soldiers out there who just shoot at people entering private homes and at best just throw them out of their homes.

“They rape women and the dead are just dumped. They open the basements where people are hiding and shoot them.”

Anastasia said she and her husband spent a week without internet, electricity, heating or water in the Russian-controlled city. Euromaidan Press reports.

110,000 people lived in Irpin before the war – now most of the population has fled.

In Kherson, another Russian-held city, Svetlana Zorina, 27, also accused invading Russian forces of sexually harassing women.

Svetlana said people living in the Black Sea port city can only “sit at home and take care of themselves because we are scared”.

Earlier this month she shared CNN: “They have already started to rape our women.

“There was information from people I know personally that a 17-year-old girl — it happened to her and then they killed her.”

She added, “We’re scared and scared, but we’re not going to give up.”

Svetlana said leaving the house had now become too “dangerous”.

She told talkRadio: “They started raping our wives, so now it’s very dangerous to go outside, especially when it’s dark.

“Unfortunately, I’ve heard about a few cases from people I know.”

It comes after a group of Ukrainian MPs accused Russian troops of raping and executing elderly Ukrainian women.

Lesia Vasylenko, an MP for Ukraine’s opposition party Holos, claimed that many women “seniors” took their own lives after being sexually abused to escape the violence.

Ms. Vasylenko said: “When Putin was unable to capture Ukraine and Kyiv over the three days he envisioned, he changed his strategy to specifically target women and children.

“We now have reports from Ukraine, particularly from the hardest hit cities, of women being raped.

“These women are usually the ones who can’t get out. We’re talking about seniors.

“We have reports that most of these women were either executed for the crime of rape or took their own lives.”

WAR CRIMES

The endangered women’s groups are said to have been targeted in the areas around Kyiv, in Bucha and Irpin.

Maria Mezentseva, MP for Servants of the People’s Party of Ukraine, added: “The women who were raped and suffered sexual violence, some of them were also hanged.

“These are the facts we collect to provide evidence of war crimes and to present them to the ECtHR.”

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba had previously claimed this Reports of sexual assaults by Putin’s soldiers Ukrainian women.

He said at a briefing at Chatham House: “Unfortunately, we have numerous cases where Russian soldiers have raped women in Ukrainian cities.”

Kuleba backed a call for the creation of a special tribunal to punish Moscow’s aggression as Russia’s hostility escalates beyond bombing.

Kuleba said international law is “the only tool civilization has at our disposal to ensure that in the end everyone who made this war possible is brought to justice.”

Human rights organizations have already warned that sexual violence against Ukrainian women is likely to increase as a result of the conflict.

Freedom from Torture director Steve Crawshaw told The Independent: “We saw torture when Moscow tried to impose dramatic violence on Chechnya.

“The torture pattern became absolutely notorious. And rape was definitely part of it.

“In the context of conflict, we see time and again that torture is used as a form of punishment and injury.

“It is senseless violence with terrible consequences for those who suffer from it.

“In the context of war, women are often targeted as a form of brutal dehumanization, with rape, including gang rape, routinely used as a weapon of war.”
