A Chechen squad known as The Kadyrovtsy have been operating a torture chamber in Ukraine near Bucha, the site of civilian massacres, and have been executing wounded Russian comrades

The brutality of Russian troops in Ukraine pales in comparison to that of their Chechen comrades.

The Kadyrovtsy, a feared Chechen military squad, has been witnessed operating a torture chamber near Bucha–the site of a civilian massacre–and executing their wounded Russian comrades at a field hospital.

Kadyrovtsy speaker (pictured in the centre) filmed a video in Mariupol last month and said: “An order to destroy and purge Mariupol is fulfilled. The order of president Putin is fulfilled, the order of Kadyrov is fulfilled”

From the Daily Mail:

The Kadyrovtsy, who have been used as a PR tool in Vladimir Putin’s war, allegedly murdered their own comrades and ‘operated a torture chamber’ in a glass factory on Yablonska Street – confirming previous reports by Ukraine’s ombudsman for human rights, Lyudmila Denisova.

Artem Hurin, a member of the city council of the neighboring town of Irpin who also serves as a deputy commander in Ukraine’s Territorial Defense Forces, was one of the first to visit Borodyanka, northwest of Bucha, after Putin’s soldiers retreated last month when Ukrainian forces recaptured the town on April 2.

He said: “They would bring heavily wounded Russian soldiers to a big hospital they had there, and those who were very heavily wounded, they would just shoot them. No one other than the Kadyrovtsy did this.”

Hurin recalled the litany of horrifying stories from residents who were tortured and raped by lawless Russian troops and saw evidence of ‘executed civilians’ who lay dead on the street.

Chechen loyalists to Putin have long been feared by Russia’s military enemies due to their renowned brutality, which mirrors that of the region’s terrorists and separatists who once blew up a school full of children in Russia. No sooner than their releas in Ukraine and reports of civilian executions began to pop up across the wartorn nation.

The Kadyrovtsy squad

Now, it appears that they are executing their own wounded brothers-in-arms rather than treating them at the field hospital outside Bucha.

As for Bucha itself, the torture chamber being operated by the Chechen forces, coupled with the civilian massacre likely perpetrated by said forces, shows that the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is escalating dramatically.

The Kadyrovtsy squad has also taken credit for the brutal conquest of Mariupol which has resulted in over 1000 civilians still being trapped and starved out in a steelworks plant.

The war in Ukraine has quickly escalated into a gruesome humanitarian crisis, perhaps the worst observed by the European continent this century.
