The Kremlin on Tuesday accused Ukrainian forces of abusing civilians in territory Kyiv’s army had taken back from Russian troops in a sweeping counter-offensive.

“As for the residents of the Kharkiv region, according to incoming reports, there are a lot of punitive measures… people are being tortured, people are being mistreated and so on. This is, of course, outrageous,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
