Ukraine names Russian soldier accused of gang-raping girl and threatening to kill family

Ukraine’s security service has named the Russian soldier accused of gang-raping a girl and threatening to kill her family, who were locked in a basement during the horrifying ordeal.

Fassakhov Bulat Lenarovych, a 21-year-old soldier from the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, stands accused of being part of a gang of invaders who committed war crimes in the region around Kyiv.

A press release published by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) today detailed his alleged crimes, as well as featuring a series of photos of the accused rapist.

The release states that Lenarovych broke into the house of a Ukrainian family and locked them all in the basement – aside from one young girl. The occupier raped the girl after threatening to kill her family, then repeated the atrocity along with three accomplices.

“Under the supervision of Kyiv Region Prosecutor’s Office, the SSU has notified him, in absentia, of suspicion of violating laws and customs of war,” the release went on.

“He is a native of the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, and serves in the 30th separate motorized rifle brigade of the 2nd guards combined army of the central military district of Russia.”

“The SSU established that during the temporary occupation of one of the towns in the Kyiv region this individual committed a number of war crimes against civilian population. Witnesses have identified him and confirmed the facts of crimes committed by him.”

Several images of the accused rapist show him in full regalia; one a front-on mug shot presumably shot for the military, and another of Lenarovych in an army beret, taken by someone sitting beside him.

Another shows a serious and unsmiling Lenarovych posing in full regalia with a woman holding his arm, presumed to be his mother.

The last image of Lenarovich shows him standing with two people his own age, presumably friends. While his companions are smiling, he shows no emotion.

Late last month The Mirror reported on a 14-year-old girl who reportedly fell pregnant after being raped by five Russian soldiers in Ukraine.

The teenager, from Bucha, plans to keep the child after doctors warned if she had an abortion now she may not be able to have children again, the report said.

Her story has been told by psychologist Oleksandra Kvitko, who works on the ombudsman’s hotline for psychological assistance, with the consent of the victim’s parents.

The psychologist is said to be working with the young girl to learn how to accept her child.

Kvitko now works with five girls between the ages 14-18 who allegedly became pregnant after being raped by Russian soldiers. The youngest victim she works with is only 10.

Kvitko told Radio Svoboda : “Girls aged 14, 15, 16 are often raped. After the war, there will be many pregnant teenagers in Ukraine”.

Victims include women, men and young children.
