A mass grave has been discovered in the city of Izyum, which Ukrainian forces recently retook from the Russian military, world agencies reported. The news was announced by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“We want the world to know what the Russian occupation has caused,” he said, without elaborating on the number of people buried in the mass grave or the causes of their deaths. Zelensky said only that an investigation had begun and more confirmed and clear information would be available later in the day.

At the same time, however, Sergiy Botvinov, a representative of the regional police in Kharkiv region, where Izyum is located, told Sky News that a place with about 440 graves had been discovered in the city. Some of the deceased in them were killed by gunshots and others were victims of bombings, he added.

Zelensky, for his part, compared Izyum with the Ukrainian cities of Bucha and Mariupol, which have become a symbol of the atrocities of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“Russia is leaving behind death everywhere. It must be responsible for that. The world must really hold Russia responsible for this war. We will do everything for it,” Zelensky assured in his traditional midnight address to Ukrainians.

Associated Press journalists have seen the site with the graves outside the borders of Izyum. Among the trees were hundreds of graves with simple wooden crosses, most of them marked only with numbers. The largest grave had an inscription that the bodies of 17 Ukrainian soldiers were buried in it.

“We have just published pictures of a cemetery in the forest where more than 400 bodies of people are buried. Exhumation of each body will be required, as was the case in Bucha. Unfortunately, we have such a negative tragic experience and we will establish the circumstances of the death of each of these more than 400 people buried in the cemetery near Izyum,” said the adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko, quoted by the Ukrainian information agency UNiAN.

He added that Izume’s houses were in ruins and, citing reports from local residents, revealed that the bodies of 47 people had been pulled from the rubble of just one of those houses.

“This is a three-story building in which two entrances collapsed as a result of a Russian aerial bomb strike. According to local residents, when they were ordered to clear the destroyed house, 47 bodies of dead people were found,” Gerashchenko said.

He suggested that the total number of deaths in Izyum during the occupation may be around 1,000.

Meanwhile, BTA reported that Ukrainian investigators have begun scanning the area where the buried Ukrainians were found with metal detectors for possible hidden explosives.
