Residents tell how Russian soldiers left civilians to die in the basement of a bombed out building.
“Twenty-five people have been under the rubble for weeks, and they are still there.”
“Only when the Russians left, on March 31, could we see the dead bodies. In a radius of one kilometre around my house we found around 15 bodies – all civilians, no military guys.”
