According to Ukraine intelligence sources, two Russian soldiers died and dozens more fell ill after being poisoned by stuffed buns handed to them by Ukrainians near Kharkiv. Citizens in the city of Izium presented delicacies to soldiers from the 3rd Motor Rifle Division, according to Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate.
“As a result, two invaders were murdered at the same time, and another 28 were rushed to the hospital,” officials posted on Facebook. The troops’ conditions at the hospital were unknown. According to Ukraine asid, another 500 soldiers fighting for Russian President Vladimir Putin have been hospitalized due to alcohol intoxication. It’s unclear whether the Russian troops got their hands on the booze from Ukrainians.
According to Ukrainian officials, Russia has classified the incidents as “non-combat losses.” In the meantime, Russia conducted strikes on the Ukrainian cities of Kharkiv and Odesa on Sunday. Over the last day, Russian forces launched more than 20 strikes on Kharkiv and its outskirts in the country’s northeast, according to regional governor Oleh Synyehubov. According to Synyehubov, a missile strike on the city of Lozovo injured four people, and Russian tanks bombarded a hospital in the village of Balakliia.
Russian military reportedly launched an attack on the Black Sea port of Odesa in southern Ukraine on Sunday morning. The targets, according to the Russian military, were an oil-processing plant and fuel stockpiles in and near Odesa, the country’s major port and home to its navy. As Russian soldiers retreated from Kyiv and its outskirts, Ukrainian officials reported they discovered brutalised bodies of women, children, and local officials in the small city of Bucha near Kyiv. Some of the ladies were allegedly raped and set on fire, according to Ukraine.

“There are slain men whose remains show evidence of torture,” Oleksiy Arestovych, a spokesman for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, stated. “Their wrists were bound, and they were shot at the back of the head and died.” According to the BBC, the terrible discovery appears “absolutely like war crimes,” according to Sergey Nikiforov, a spokesman for Zelensky.
The Russian government has repeatedly denied committing war crimes in Ukraine as part of its “special military operation.” Last week, Russia promised to “dramatically” lessen its strikes in the vicinity of Kyiv and Chernihiv, however, Ukraine has warned that this does not mean the cities will never be targets again, and the US and its allies speculated that the move could simply be Putin regrouping.
