She also noted that there are always a lot of cases about sexual crimes already in the procedural plane immediately after the end of the war, when the victims are confident in their safety.

The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Irina Venediktova said on the air of the informational telethon that the facts of rape of the grandmother and children during the occupation in Borodyanka were recorded.

"People have experienced terrible tragedies; people are still where they are afraid … If we were talking about sexual violence, we know operationally that it exists. Moreover, sexual crimes not only against women but against men! Today Borodianka recorded the fact of raping her grandmother! Children! ", - said the Prosecutor General.

She also noted that there are always a lot of cases about sexual crimes already in the procedural plane immediately after the end of the war, when the victims are confident in their safety.

"Victims are intimidated; victims are afraid to speak! We have some victims in Western Ukraine; some victims are already abroad. They communicate only with those non-governmental organizations and priests they trust. Therefore, we will work it out as much as possible in a sensual space. But this is not a story that there should be an investigating woman, this is a story that there should be only one interrogation so that the victim is constantly "not pulled" … This is a story about preparing them morally and providing rehabilitation … ", - said Venediktova.

She also stressed that wartime sexual crimes are also war crimes that have no statute of limitations.

Recall that today in Borodyanka, they got 26 bodies of dead civilians. According to the Prosecutor General, now the number of civilian casualties will be difficult to predict.
