According to a country politician, Russian forces have branded a swastika on the body of a woman they murdered and raped in a bid to provide further evidence of war crimes against Ukrainian innocents.
MP Lesia Vasylenko – a member of the liberal Holos party – posted on Twitter a picture of an exposed torso with the Nazi symbol burned into the flesh.
Lawmakers said it was scarred on the “tortured body of a raped and killed woman”.
The image – which has been pixelated due to its horrific nature – shows an area of an injured torso branded with the crude swastika, which appears to have been etched with repeated cuts and burns.
Ms Vasylenko gave no details as to where the picture was originally taken but accused Russian soldiers of being responsible.
According to pro-Russian reports, the sickening torture was carried out by Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Azov Battalion at a site near Mariupol MailOnline reports.
But Ukrainian reports deny it was her compatriots, claiming instead that Russian troops mutilated the woman’s body post-mortem.
Ms Vasylenko added: “Russian soldiers are looting, raping and killing … women with swastika-shaped burns. Russia. Russian men did that.”
In later tweets, lawmakers heaped further allegations on the Russian enemy.
A horrific accusation, repeated by journalists entering liberated cities, is that 10-year-old girls showed physical signs of violent rape.
She wrote: “10 year old girls with vaginal and rectal tears. Women with swastika-shaped burns. Russia. Russian men did that. And Russian mothers raised them. A nation of immoral criminals.”
In another tweet, Ms Vasylenko said her “heart breaks” after being told “not to send baby food to the liberated villages” because “there aren’t many babies left”.
Global outrage spread Monday over the deaths of civilians in Ukraine, including evidence of bound bodies shot at point-blank range and a mass grave found in areas retaken by Russian forces as artillery shelled the south and bombed the east of the country.

Reuters reporters saw several bodies on the side of the road in the Ukrainian city of Bucha on Sunday, one with his hands tied behind his back and a gunshot wound to the head, one of hundreds of local residents found dead, officials said after five weeks of Russian occupation.
On Sunday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said in a statement that all photos and videos released by Ukrainian authorities alleging alleged crimes by Russian troops in Bucha were a “provocation” and that no resident of Bucha had suffered violence at the hands of Kremlin troops.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke to citizens during visits to the devastated cities of Irpin and Bucha today.
A group of twisted soldiers – dubbed the “Butchers of Bucha” – are said to have raped and murdered both women and children in the city of Bucha.
Ukrainians in Bucha at the time of the Russian occupation have shared first-hand accounts of random passers-by being shot, homes ransacked and residents forbidden to leave even during humanitarian corridor deals.
Mom Kristina tells insider She spent 10 days in a house in Bucha in “terrible fear” that the Russian soldiers stationed in her own yard would murder her and her three-year-old daughter.
Recalling the moment she finally made her way to safety under Ukrainian troops, she told the publication: “We’re safe for now, but our psyche is broken, we’ve changed, nothing will be the same.
“We try to communicate normally, even joke a little, but if you close your eyes you immediately see a street full of corpses and how we froze with our hands up waiting for them to make up their minds.”
She continued, “It’s a blessing that we managed to get out. But my soul and my thoughts are with Bucha and with all the hero cities, with the people who are imprisoned, with the children who shouldn’t be involved in the war at all.” .”
