A gruesome image has emerged allegedly showing the bodies of Russian soldiers laid out in the letter “Z” after the Ukrainian army took over a village in the east of the country.

The photo was taken outside the city of Kharkiv on Monday and shows four corpses lined up to form the letter that has become a sign of support for the Russian military and its invasion of Ukraine.

The Associated Press described the area where its photographer took the image as having “the feel of an open-air morgue, where the dead lie unclaimed and unexplained, sometimes for weeks, as Ukrainian and Russian forces fight for control of strips of land.”
