Russian troops gang-raped woman before sexually assaulting her four-year-old daughter, horror UN report reveals | The Sun
SICK Russian troops have gang-raped a woman before sexually assaulting her four-year-old daughter, a horror UN report has revealed.
They then sexually abused her husband and made the couple have sex in front of them before raping their young daughter.
In Chernihiv region, an 83-year-old woman was raped in front of her physically disabled husband while near Kyiv, a 56-year-old told UN officials of how three Russian soldiers broke into her home with two raping her while the third watched on.
These harrowing testimonies are among many that have laid bare the reality of Russia's brutal occupation in Ukraine.
The damning report, conducted by a special task force sent to record car crime in the war-stricken country, found a sickening pattern of torture and imprisonment of civilians.
The study detailed how Russian soldiers carried out summary executions on victims as young as 14-year-old and plucked women and girls from their home to rape in abandoned dwellings – and in some cases, leading them to commit suicide.

In many cases, Russians shot dead the husbands of women they raped as soon as they tried to defend them.
In March, Vladimir Putin's troops broke into a family's home near Kyiv and raped a 22-year-old woman several times before sexually abusing her husband.
One of the soldiers then forced their four-year-old daughter to perform oral sex on him.
"In most cases, these acts of rape also amount to torture and cruel or inhumane treatment for the victims and for relatives who were forced to watch," the report read.

In another village, a man was shot dead after he tried to defend his 50-year-old wife who was being dragged out of the family home by a Russian soldier.
According to the report, the soldier took the woman to a empty house and raped her until an armed Russian unit arrived and took him away.
Some rape victims had their homes trashed and goods and food stolen while others went on to find out their loved ones had been tortured and executed by Russian troops.
Rape is a war crime and has been used as a weapon in conflicts in Bosnia in 1992, Rwanda in 1994 and Darfur in 2003.
One Ukrainian rape victim told the Commission said she felt 'shamed' and was "extremely scared and intimated".
One psychologist who interviewed survivors said: "All victims with whom I am working are blaming themselves for being spotted by perpetrators and being raped."
In March, Ukraine claimed a one-year-old boy died from his injuries after being raped by Russian soldiers.
The sickening claim came as over 60 rape cases were reported in two days, including two 10-year-old boys in Kharkiv.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence said in a tweet yesterday: "Today, in just one hour, 10 reports of rape by the [Russian] occupiers, including 8 children, were received from newly liberated villages in the Kharkiv region.
"Yesterday – 56 reports. Among the children: two 10-year-old boys and a 1-year-old boy who died of his injuries."
