Russia has been waging a war on Ukraine since February 24. Millions of people have been injured in a Russian-led offensive in Ukraine. With thousands dead, more than four million people have so far sought refuge in neighboring countries.
The Russian military has been accused of human rights abuses in Ukraine. In particular, a woman has been interviewed by the media to confirm allegations that women in the country are being sexually abused by the Russian military.
The woman’s husband is from the Karson region of Ukraine and is serving in the Ukrainian army. When the war broke out, she sent her 4 children to safety and is now living alone. In this case, when the woman went to the store to buy groceries, a customer there told the Russian army that she was the wife of a Ukrainian soldier.
