STORYLINE:

Human rights spokesperson Liz Throssell today (6 Oct) said “the appalling scenes from the village of Hroza in the Kharkiv region of Ukraine underscores once again the terrible price civilians are paying 20 months after Russia’s invasion.”

According to the local authorities, Throssell said, “52 people were killed when what appeared to be a Russian missile struck a café in the village, where people had gathered for a wake.”

So far, our colleagues in the Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU) have established the
names of 27 people who were killed – 15 women and 12 men, and of three women and one man who were injured. One Ukrainian soldier who was attending his father’s funeral was among those killed, according to the authorities.

“What is clear,” the spokesperson continued, “is that the strike is one of the deadliest since 24 February 2022, but of course far from being the only one.”

She added that UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk, “is profoundly shocked and condemns this act,” and has deployed a field team to the site “to speak to survivors and gather more information.”

Throssell said, “before the Russian invasion, the village’s population was about 300. It is not clear how many residents were still living there, but it is clear that with the high number of people killed, everybody in this small community has been affected. We know at least eight families had more than one relative killed in the attack.”

“We stress once again that international humanitarian law, in particular the rules on conduct of hostilities must be strictly respected,” she said.
