The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights receives reports of war crimes committed by Russians in Ukraine every day.

This was stated

by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk

, during his visit to Ukraine.

He noted that reports of rape, violence, illegal arrests, torture, abductions and murders of people are received every day.

Turk said that the world should not take for granted that millions of Ukrainians are in constant danger.

He also stated the shocking scale of destruction that Ukraine suffered during the Russian aggression.

The UN representative also said that a "long and gloomy winter" awaits Ukrainians.

"The prognosis is very worrying," he added.

Turk noted that the UN monitoring mission will publish a report on crimes committed against the civilian population by the Russian military during the occupation of various regions of Ukraine.

"There are good reasons to believe that the executions documented in the report without proper trial constitute a war crime - deliberate murder," he explained.

The UN representative said that as a result of the war, 17.7 million people needed humanitarian assistance, a third of the population was forced to leave their homes, almost 8 million people left the country, and another 6.5 million became internally displaced.

"I would like to emphasize that the most effective way to stop the continuous flow of brutality is to put an end to this senseless war - in accordance with the UN Charter and international law," the High Commissioner said.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that the 

Russians killed 10 civilians in Kurakhovo

.
