A unit of Chechen fighters called the Kadyrovtsy slaughtered and wounded Russian troops near the city of Bucha, where an alleged torture chamber was operated.

“They would bring heavily wounded Russian soldiers to a big hospital they had there, and those who were very heavily wounded, they would just shoot them,” Artem Hurin said. “No one other than the Kadyrovtsy did this.”

Hurim is a member of the city council of Irprin and a deputy commander in the Ukrainian Territorial Defense Force. He was one of the first people to visit the city of Bucha after the Russians fled the area. There, he got a chance to hear from residents about the atrocities the Russians did to civilians and their own soldiers.

Eyewitnesses claim that the Chechen group has been executing Ukrainians since March 5. Bucha Mayor Anatoliy Fedoruk described bodies with gunshot wounds and their hands tied behind their backs using a white cloth. This was earlier reported by SOFREP as well, where we obtained exclusive photos from Bucha showing evidence of people being tied up and shot behind the head.
