The girl was seized on the street, tortured and raped, shot in the head. The girl's stepfather, Andriy Derenko, said that "her body was all cut, most of the nails on her fingers were missing, she seemed to be trying to protect herself, trying to fight back". This is reported by Espreso.TV with reference to the Bucha City Council.



 

As noted, Karina was raped, shot in the back of the head and thrown into a mass grave in the courtyard of the church, where more than 400 bodies were exhumed after the liberation of Bucha.

 

The girl was buried in the White Church.  The heartbroken mother tried to open the coffin, but she was held back.

 

"We consider it possible that she was raped. We did not see the lower part of her body, only the upper part, but what we saw... We can only imagine what could be on the rest of her body", said the stepfather of the deceased girl.

 

The National Police informed the family that Karina had been tortured and killed.  At the same time, some horrific details were not announced.

 

"However, it is known that her hands were burned to the bone, while the silver rings that she always wore remained on her fingers. A tourniquet was also applied to the girl’s leg, apparently to stop bleeding from a gunshot wound", the report says.

 

"I cried my eyes out. Now I have no tears", said the girl's mother Elena.

 

Their family fled Donetsk in 2014 to escape Russian occupation.  But the Russian army caught up with them in Bucha. They speak Russian, but they hate Russia.

 

"We hate them. We are from the Donetsk region, where almost all people speak Russian, but I hate the Russians because they killed a Russian-speaking girl. Now I am ashamed to speak Russian because I hate the "Russian world." Russian  soldiers are not people. They are animals", Andriy said.
