Several Russian military officers illegally entered Natalya’s (not her real) residence near Brovary on the outskirts kyiv. They then killed her husband and sexually abused him. They were drunk after the rape and fell asleep. The victim then took advantage of this to grab her son Oleskii, also fictional, and flee across Ukraine amid all the conflict in Ukraine, especially in the capital.
The hard story is what the victims tell The Times from Ternopil on the banks the Seret River (further West and near the border with Poland), where they now seek refuge. The incident occurred just days after the Russian invasion, which took place February 24.
Natalya says that she was there with her husband, their son, and their dog. She was hiding from the bombs that fell on the Ukrainian capital. Her shelter was disturbed and her home became chaotic when the aggressors arrived.
The attackers killed the dog, crashed the car of the victim and searched the home. Mikhail Romanov, the military officer in charge, told the dog that he was Mikhail Romanov. “They would have the romance” if they were not in a conflict.They left, but everything was there.
“They didn’t care that my son was crying in the boiler room. They said to me to stop yelling and that I should come back. The gun was held up to my head, and they taunted me with questions like “Do we kill her?”‘” explains the victim to the media.
After the abuse, they fled. She then went to search for her son who was still immobile and scared. A few minutes later, however, he was back. They entered again and raped her a third time. “On that last occasion, they were so drunk they could barely stand. They fell asleep on the chairs. I used that opportunity to bring my son back. He told her that we had to run very quickly or they would shoot us, ”the woman confesses.
She fled with her son across the fields, to a neighbor’s place. They had also smashed their car into trees. They reached Brovary where they were reunited with their in-laws. They were then taken to Ternopil, where she lives with her sister in law.
Social networks helped them identify Romanov, who had a history involving sexual crimes. However, he says that he is still unable to tell his son his father has died.
