Nate Mook also works with World Central Kitchen, and they have reached Trostyanets.
On a two-day visit to the town, the Guardian found evidence of summary executions, torture and systematic looting during the month of occupation, but it will a take a long time to catalogue all the crimes the Russians committed in places like Trostianets.
I’ve never seen devastation like this. I’m in Trostyanets in Ukraine, which was occupied by Russian troops for 30 days. We @WCKitchen brought food to railway workers cleaning up & met the mayor. There is no food here at all—everything was looted. We start deliveries this week! 🇺🇦 pic.twitter.com/XegCAbMD7A

It’s not clear how many citizens were killed in Trostyanets. The Guardian says it may be over 50, but it will be a while before we know the full toll. That’s probably true in Borodyanka as well, because so many people left the city as the Russians came in. But as you can see in the video below, the city was crushed much as Bucha was.
Footage from Borodyanka, a liberated town in Kyiv Oblast, shows one destroyed building after another.
Prosecutor General earlier said that Borodyanka has the most victims among the liberated cities in Kyiv Oblast but hasn't revealed the numbers.
