16, pregnant and then raped by a soldier fighting for russia

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “16, pregnant and then raped by a soldier fighting for Russia” – below is their description.

Ukraine’s prosecutor general is investigating 110 cases of rape or sexual assault as a war crime, since Russia’s full scale invasion began… a number expected to increase as more evidence emerges from the recently liberated city of Kherson. At least five cases involve children – and our team has spent six months investigating one of them.

In March – Daria Fishun, known as Dasha – was raped by a soldier who was part of the Russian occupation forces in the village of Krasnivka, in the Kherson region. She was just sixteen, and pregnant, at the time of the assault. We’ve gathered evidence that suggests that senior Russian commanders knew about what happened.

Warning: there are distressing details in this report.
