Putin’s Hordes Wreak Havoc in Ukraine with Mass Atrocities Against Civilians  

The Russian military has started indiscriminate carpet-bombing of Ukraine residential areas.

This comes on top of banned munitions, coupled with mass-scale rapes of Ukrainian women and the abductions and disappearance of Ukrainian men, in already occupied parts of the country.

Carpet-Bombing Ukrainian Civilians with Cluster Bombs

The campaign of large-scale atrocities against the civilian population comes amid the hardening and increasingly successful resistance by the Ukrainian military and territorial defense forces of civilians of all ages and both sexes.

Russian troops coming out of Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula which Putin seized and annexed when he first invaded Ukraine back in 2014, have been more successful so far.

Social media has abounded with videos showing Ukrainian civilians in southern towns and cities staging peaceful protests or trying to stop Russian tank columns while being unarmed and standing in front of them.

Russian-Conquered City: Gang Rapes of Women, Men Going Missing

That is a marked contrast to the mass resistance by armed Ukrainian civilians in the northern and eastern parts of the country.

As a result, as the Russians managed to occupy Kherson; the occupiers are now reported to be gang-raping Ukrainian women and to be abducting and likely torturing and killing Ukrainian men.

The latter appears to confirm warnings by US, German, and other Western intelligence services saying Putin’s forces, military, and intelligence alike, have drawn up lists of free-minded, liberty-loving Ukrainian activists to throw into concentration camps.


Information about the rapes was shared on Twitter by Dmitry Kuleba, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, a key member of the Cabinet of courageous Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

While Kuleba didn’t mention specific numbers, reports in the Ukrainian media confirmed a total of 11 cases of gang rape of women captured by Russian soldiers in the city of Kherson alone.

After Thursday, the Russian autocrat told German Chancellor Olaf Scholz that all reports about Russian war crimes and atrocities in Ukraine are “fake news”.

Putin’s lies came right against the backdrop of heavy bombardment of Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, and the nearby town of Boradyanka.

At least 100 civilians are believed to be lying dead beneath the rubble of a destroyed apartment building; a Russian attack with the banned cluster bombs killed at least 49 civilians in Chernihiv, a city of 300,000 people northeast of Kyiv.

The situation in the Black Sea city of Mariupol, which has about 500,000 inhabitants, is believed to be horrifyingly desperate; it has been completely cut off from the rest of the world by the Russian invaders, who are bombing it constantly.

The local population has already run out of food; there is no water, electricity, or way to tell how long the Ukrainian troops and civilians in the Black Sea city would be able to hold on.
