On September 19, 146 bodies of the dead were exhumed from the improvised cemetery in Izium. Women and children are among them. The Russians tortured people in the police station and other places.
Law enforcement officers found bodies of men with tied hands, broken jaws, amputated genitalia, and other traces of torture. Some sources reported that the United Nations would send a mission to the site of mass graves in Izium, which were discovered after the city's liberation from Russian occupation.
