Putin's troops accused of keeping Ukrainians in fridges before taking them to Russia
Vladimir Putin's forces have been accused of keeping Ukrainians in refrigerators before carting them off to Russia, according to a Ukraine human rights organisation. Grim reports from officials in Ukraine say that troops abducted, threatened and deported civilians in the towns of Gostomel, Irpen and Bucha during their failed assault on Kyiv this year.The Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs now believes that dozens of deported civilians are being held in Russian jails, and are likely facing torture.Numerous reports of kidnappings also remain unresolved, with some families still trying to find missing members nearly a month after Russians retreated from the area.Some have been taken to Russia and Belarus under the guise of 'evacuation', where they are in fact placed in camps and not allowed to leave.One witness to the alleged atrocities described being threatened with death and separated from his loved ones as he was forced into a terrifying interrogation.The man, named Oleg, was placed under blindfold with close family near an airfield in Ukraine and had a gun held to his temple when his own son ran out to tell soldiers that he should not be killed.His entire family was then transported in the armoured personnel carrier, while blindfolded, before being put into a disused refrigeration unit.For the latest breaking news and stories from across the globe from the Daily Star, sign up for our newsletter by clicking here.Oleg told human rights organisation the Media Initiative for Human Rights (MIPL): "We were placed in non-functioning refrigerators in a dilapidated dining room.
Vladimir Putin's Russia bombs Ukrainian school packed with civilians killing up to 60
Ukraine has killed two people and another 60 are feared dead beneath the rubble.Russian forces shelled the village of Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region on Saturday afternoon which set a school on fire as about 90 people used it for shelter.Luhansk governor Serhiy Gaidai said 30 people were rescued from the flames but confirmed two lifeless bodies were found and 60 more people were yet to make it out of the burning debris alive.Belarus-based media outlet, Nexta, reported that those killed were children however officials in Ukraine have not backed the claims.Gaidai wrote in a Telegram post: "The fire was extinguished after nearly four hours, then the rubble was cleared, and, unfortunately, the bodies of two people were found. Sixty people were likely to have died under the rubble of buildings."The number of casualties is due to Vladimir Putin's army dropping a bomb on the exact building where "almost the whole village was hiding".In the nearby village of Shypilovo, 11 people are thought to have been trapped in the rubble of a destroyed house by more Russian shelling, Mr Gaidai said.The Russian military has been accused of committing war crimes for its persistent targeting of areas packed with civilian such as hospitals and schools, but Moscow has rejected the allegations.Since sending tanks into Ukraine on February 24, thousands of Ukrainians have been killed and 5 million have fled abroad as thriving cities are razed to the ground.
