In Ukraine, the justice system is now documenting potential war crimes committed by Russian forces, with the hope of one day seeing the offenders face justice. Like in all conflicts, women are the main victims of rape committed by the Russian occupiers, although many men have also suffered genital torture. The victims of these sexual crimes are often ashamed and find it very difficult to speak out. Some agreed to do so in this report by Ilioné Schultz and Marine Courtade.
