Vladimir Putin’s twitchy soldiers are throwing Ukrainian prisoners of war with pocket knives in Russian concentration camps.
The two survivors, aged 25 and 28, who were held in Russian captivity for one and three months, described their horrific experience as worse than hell.
The two Ukrainian soldiers were sent back to Ukraine in a prisoner swap and then referred to psychologist Anzhelika Yatsenko, 41, who helps young people facing serious hardships.
Based on his previous experience, he knew that they were probably both tortured because they were suicidal and the young soldier tried to kill himself.
The men could not tell him what had happened for a month, but told him: ‘If there is hell anywhere, this is worse than that.’

When she found out what their evil captors had done, she went to the bathroom to ‘cry and cry’ – because it was the most terrifying thing she had ever heard.
After beating two Ukrainian soldiers to within an inch of their lives, drunken Russian soldiers stabbed them to death, the Sunday Times reported.
One of the victims said they didn’t know how they were alive with ‘so much blood’.
And sick Russians doubled down on the insults, telling them they were doing it so they couldn’t have children, which Ms Yatensko described as ‘genocide’.
The older of the two men returned to duty in the Ukrainian army.
During the war with Ukraine, the Russian military used several inhumane and heinous tactics.
UN experts warned this week that Russia is reportedly using electric shocks, hooding and mock executions on civilians and prisoners of war in Ukraine.
A group of United Nations experts said Thursday they had written to Moscow expressing concern over the Russian military’s use of torture in Ukraine.
They said in a statement that the torture included electric shocks, hooding and shaming and was carried out in response to extracting intelligence, coerced confessions or alleged support for Ukrainian forces.
This has resulted in internal organ damage, broken bones and fractures, strokes and psychological trauma.
In April, a Russian soldier admitted in a phone call to executions by slitting the throats of Ukrainian prisoners of war, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) said.
In the intercepted phone conversation, the serviceman, identified by the SBU as Yevgeny Suchko, who was deployed to Ukraine in 2022, is heard describing in detail how he cut the throats of Ukrainians.
The 28-year-old soldier said in an intercepted call that there was ‘no point’ in keeping POWs and they ‘need to be disposed of’.
The SBU said it was working to bring “every war criminal from Russia” to justice and ensure they “deserved” punishment.
Moscow has previously denied torturing or mistreating prisoners of war and has said it does not deliberately target civilians in Ukraine (Putin, pictured, 27 April).
Moscow has previously denied torturing or mistreating prisoners of war and has said it does not deliberately target Ukrainian civilians.
Although torture has previously been alleged against both sides in the 15-month conflict, the UN’s independent team of experts said Russian forces’ methods could be ‘state-sponsored’.
The persistence and methods of the alleged torture suggested ‘a level of coordination, planning and organisation, as well as direct sanction, deliberate policy or official tolerance from higher authorities’, said Alice Jill Edwards, the UN special rapporteur on torture, who sent the letter. June 12 along with many other independent experts.
“Following higher orders or policy directives cannot be said to justify torture and anyone involved should be immediately investigated and prosecuted by independent authorities,” he said.
