Not far from the city of Kherson, Russian security forces found a torture chamber, as well as a mined body of a man in the form of the Russian army. This was reported on May 3 by RIA Novosti with reference to law enforcement officers who carried out the raid.
“The mined body, presumably of a Russian serviceman, was found in the basement of the roadside cafe Stary Oak on the M-14 highway in Zelenovka. Remains of military uniforms of the Russian Armed Forces were found on the corpse. The body of a man without legs, with traces of torture and a slit larynx,” the security forces said.
The interlocutors of the agency also provided journalists with video recordings from the scene. They show that in the basement of the cafe next to the body lies an object, probably an anti-tank mine. The off-screen voice claims that there is TNT in the same place.
It is reported that syringes are scattered on the territory of the institution, as security officials assume, with drugs. In addition, the footage shows a large amount of plastic shipping closures for the American Javelin anti-tank systems that the United States supplies to Ukraine.
