The young girls suffered vaginal and rectal tears while women's bodies with burns in the shape of hooked crosses had been found. A hooked cross is also called swastika for its similarity to the sacred Indian symbol.

Lesia Vasylenk said that Russian troops were looting, raping and killing people in Ukraine and referred to Russia as a "nation of immoral crimes".
