President Volodymyr Zelensky has said two more mass graves have been discovered in Izium, northeast Ukraine, following their liberation from Russian occupation earlier this month.
“Today I received more information,” Zelensky told CBS in an interview that aired on Sunday. “The journalists are on their way. They found two more mass graves, big graves with hundreds of people.”
“Also and we're talking about a little town of Izium. Do you know? There are two more mass graves in a small town. This is what's going on.”
Some context: On Friday, Ukrainian authorities completed the exhumation of over 400 bodies from a previously discovered mass burial site in Izium. Most of the bodies showed signs of violent death, and 30 had traces of torture, according to an official.
