2:05 p.m.: A drab concrete building that used to house unruly youths in the city of Kherson before Russia invaded it became infamous for detentions and the torture of Ukrainian captives by Russian forces.
According to a report by The Washington Post, an area resident who did not want to be identified for security reasons, said that screams would be heard coming from the building. Sometimes, he said, detainees would be dumped in the street physically and mentally broken. Some captives were never seen again. “If there is a hell on Earth, it was here,” he said.
1:10 p.m.: The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is expected Monday to approve a resolution calling on Russia to pay war reparations to Ukraine. Sergiy Kyslytsya, the permanent representative of Ukraine to the United Nations, expressed his gratitude to the countries that have been working for months on the complexities of the draft.
According to VOA Ukrainian reporter Iryna Solomko, Kyslytsya said as of now 56 countries that have co-sponsored this resolution have made their position clear “to compensate for the damage that the aggressor state has caused to Ukraine and not only to Ukraine, by the way, but also to many other foreign entities, both individuals and companies.”
According to a spokesman, businesses that were successful prior to Russia’s invasion on Ukraine have suffered as a result. He urged the United Nations General Assembly “to consider how the Russian Federation should compensate (them)” for damages.
