In the Kherson region, Russian servicemen raped a woman for 4 months. Another local woman has been systematically exposed and tortured since March 2022. In particular, they were poured with boiling water.

Cases of gender-based violence were recorded, when the wives of Ukrainian defenders who participated in the anti-terrorist operation or were related to the Armed Forces were taken from their families and tortured.

Prosecutors discovered more than 30 cases of genital electric torture, which were applied to the local civilian population. In total, more than 100 facts of torture using electric current against local men have been established.

Recently, in Kherson, the body of a man with his hands tied and with a gunshot wound to his head was found. Law enforcers continue to record the stories of Kherson residents about their detention and torture during the occupation.
