A new mass burial of victims of the russian occupation was found in the city of Borodianka in the Kyiv region. The bodies of 3 murdered men were found in one grave.

The head of the police of the Kyiv region, Andriy Niebytov, said this during the briefing.

As the head of the police noted, the burial was done by a resident during the occupation, around March 8, 2022.

With a friend, he found the bodies of local residents, whom the occupiers shot, and managed to make a temporary burial.

"When russians already established such a regime that it was impossible to move around the city, he left for a safer area and only now returned and informed the National Police that he had made such a burial during the occupation," explained Niebytov.

One of the killed men was a 50-year-old resident. The russian occupiers shot him in the car, and then the car burned down.

The identities of the other two victims have not yet been established. They were probably shot in the head.

One man had a pencil in his pocket, and another had a comb and other belongings. Law enforcement officers hope to establish the victims' identities through these personal items. The bodies were exhumed and will be sent for examinations.
