Russian troops branded a woman with a Swastika, a Ukrainian MP has said.

Lesia Vasylenko, of Ukraine's liberal Holos party, shared an image on Twitter of what she claimed was the "tortured body of a raped and killed woman".

Ms Vasylenko she wrote: “Tortured body of a raped and killed woman. I’m speechless.

"My mind is paralysed with anger and fear and hatred."

Her comments come after Kira Rudik, A member of Ukrainian Parliament told GB News that women were being "constantly raped by Russian soldiers with their children having to watch" in Bucha.

Video footage over the weekend seemed to show dozens of dead bodies lying in the streets of the Ukrainian town, with the blame being pointed towards Russia.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described the actions in Bucha as "war crimes and will be recognised by the world as genocide".

Ms Rudik told Farage on Monday: "I have been to Bucha today with other parliamentary leaders. I have seen the mass grave. 300 bodies. I have never seen something like this before.

"They were peaceful people, mostly men but there were women and children with their hands behind their backs who didn't bare arms, who were sitting in their basements just waiting for the Russians to leave and they were executed just because they exist.

"We call it genocide. I have seen children who died of pneumonia because they had to in the basement for 39 days straight without the light of the sun."

She added: "We have talked to women who were constantly raped by Russian soldiers with their children having to watch it. Women whose husbands were killed right in from of them and then they were severely raped.

"We have seen dead women's bodies who were raped beforehand and then the Russians tried to burn the bodies.

"We have seen people's bodies who were crossed over by tanks multiple times just for fun.

"We have seen so many crimes that you cannot forget it, you cannot understand how it is even possible. They killed people for the sake of killing."

The Russian invasion on Ukraine entered its 41st day on Tuesday.
