“Our main work is documenting war crimes committed by the Russian military in Kharkiv region and the city,” he says. “We have recorded murders, rapes, theft of property, cars, agricultural machinery, and grain. But most of all, there has been shelling of infrastructure facilities in Kharkiv and the region. There are more than 10,000 criminal proceedings under this article. We store the remains of shells and rockets at a separate site.”

Dmytro showed Lesya Nikitiuk one of the places where material evidence of war crimes committed by Russia against civilians on the territory of Ukraine is kept.

“The dump of shells used by the Russians to shell Kharkiv is a picture that is simply speechless. There’s a whole cemetery of missiles there!” Lesya Ivanovna says, “Each of those missiles destroyed someone’s house or took someone’s life.

At the landfill: shells from Smerch, Uragan, Grad D-21 multiple rocket launchers, X-55 and X-101 cruise missiles, Kalibr, and artillery shells.

“The cost of all this ammunition is over $100 million. And the damage they caused, and this is only in the city, is several tens of billions of dollars. That’s according to the Kharkiv City Council,” says Dmytro. “Kharkiv has been hit hard. When the Russians realized that they would not be able to capture the city, they just started shelling it randomly. In particular, Northern Saltovka. Like crazy, they were firing two dozen shells a day. This area was heavily damaged. As for the victims, more than 1,500 people died in the city and the region from shelling alone. And we are not taking into account the number of people killed by the Russian military during the occupation, people who died from the inability to provide medical care, lack of medicines, food or water.”
