Three Russian soldiers who raped a woman during the occupation of a part of the Kyiv region were declar ed of the suspicion of violating the laws and customs of war.

This was reported by the Prosecutor Generalʼs Office.

The suspects are soldiers of the 37th Separate Guards Motorized Rifles of the Don Budapest Red Banner of the Order of the Red Star Brigade (37th OMBR, military unit 69647) of the Russian Armed Forces. They are natives of the Republic of Buryatia, Chityna region and Irkutsk region of Russia.

These Russian occupiers entered the house where two women and a child lived with weapons, checked for men, and took one of the women to the garage, where they raped her one by one. When one of them committed a crime, the others were outside to avoid resistance from relatives or neighbors of the victim.

During the occupation, one Russian raped a woman every day for a week, another did it twice, and the third once.

  • Earlier, the police had already informed about the suspicion of the senior sergeant of the 37th Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade of the Russian Federation, who, during the occupation of Kyiv Oblast, raped a woman twice in the Buchansk community. A native of Buryatia, together with other Russians, robbed households and conducted raids. During one of them, he broke into the victimʼs house, where her elderly mother and daughter were, and ordered her to go to the garage. He threatened to rape her young child if she refused.
  • On March 14, the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine opened a case against two Russian soldiers who sexually assaulted a child and raped her mother in Kyiv region. All this happened in front of the father, who was beaten. The investigation established that the crime was committed by Russian soldiers from the 15th separate motorized rifle brigade in the Brovar district of the Kyiv region.
