President Volodymyr Zelensky's chief of staff, Andriy Yermak, said that the prosecutors registered over 47,900 war crimes allegedly committed by Russian troops in Ukraine.

According to Yermak, more than 8,400 civilians, including 440 children, were killed during Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

"The atrocities we are facing are shocking," he said. "When our law enforcement agencies conducted an exhumation in Izium (Kharkiv Oblast), they found a minor girl who was first raped and then brutally killed. They found a boy whose genitals were cut off before execution. We discover such terrible things every time we liberate a new settlement."

Dmytro Lubinets, the Ukrainian parliament’s Commissioner for Human Rights, reported in early November, that new facts of torture reportedly inflicted by Russian troops on Kherson Oblast residents during the occupation were discovered, including a torture chamber with a separate cell where teenagers were kept. He also said he was “shocked” by the scale of torture Russian forces inflicted on the residents of the recently liberated Kherson during the city’s occupation.

On Nov. 21, Spain announced it would send its police units to Ukraine to assist the country's law enforcement officers "in the investigation into possible war crimes and crimes against humanity."

"Ukrainians are bravely defending their land against Russia’s brutal invasion, but the past two years of war have had a tragic impact on millions of people across Ukraine. Families have been separated, towns and villages decimated, and vital civilian infrastructure destroyed," said U.K. Foreign Secretary David Cameron in a written statement.
