Ukrainian ex-serviceman claims Russians tortured him in eastern city of Izium

Alexander Glushko says he spent the last fortnight of the Russian occupation of his hometown of Izium in northeast Ukraine jailed by Russian soldiers in the dank ruins of a police station where he was tortured with electric wires. He said he was also beaten during an earlier five-day stint in Russian captivity in May.

Russia has consistently denied its troops have committed war crimes since its troops invaded Ukraine in February.
