Several dozen graves were again found in areas recaptured from the Ukrainian army. Again, it will be difficult to identify everyone.

Graves of more than 50 civilians have been found in the city of Lyman, recently liberated by Ukrainian troops, according to Ukrainian media.

“The Russians have dug trenches and accused people of collaborating with the Ukrainian military suspected, forced to collect the bodies of the dead for reburial,” said the Ukrainian Internet TV channel Hromadske. In addition, he presented photos of the burial site.

According to the medium, some victims died as a result of the shelling of the city. Lyman was captured in May by troops loyal to Moscow after intense fighting and was recaptured by the Ukrainians in early October after heavy fighting. While some of the dead have their names on them, other graves only have numbers on them.

After the withdrawal of Russian troops were in different parts of the Ukraine mass graves found. The bodies found in the Kiev suburb of Bucha caused international outrage. Hundreds of dead civilians had been found there – some with signs of torture and their hands tied. Since then, Bucha has been considered a symbol for the most serious war crimes.
