Ukraine continues to bury victims of Russian troops in Kharkiv Oblast

After the liberation of Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine found mass graves of the victims of Russian troops. Morgue workers in Izium who face death every day, still can’t recover from the horrors of living under the Russian occupation.

At the time, when the city was invaded by occupiers, only three workers stayed at the morgue: a laboratory assistant, a pathologist, and a forensic expert.
