Residents of Kherson reported that during the occupation, the Russians brought the bodies of the dead invaders to the territory of the dump on the outskirts of the city and, probably, burned them there.
According to the residents of Kherson, they were forbidden to approach this landfill, having fenced it off “from prying eyes.”
According to the publication, the reason for such “nervous secrecy”, according to Kherson residents, was that the occupying troops had the goal of dumping the bodies of their dead brethren there and then burning them.
Local residents reported seeing Russian trucks arriving at the dump with black bags, which they then set on fire, filling the air with a large cloud of smoke and the terrible smell of burnt flesh.
Kherson residents believe that in this way the Russians disposed of the bodies of their soldiers who died during heavy fighting in the summer. Although some of them specified that they did not directly see these bodies.
The dump workers say the Russians have chosen the most isolated area of the dump.
The truck driver, also a dump worker, noted that the Russians could mine the area or leave unexploded devices there.
The publication notes that it is not yet able to independently confirm the information received. At the same time, the Ukrainian authorities do not comment on the investigation on this matter.
However, writes The Guardian, the remains of Russian flags, uniforms and helmets can still be seen in the landfill.
