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.”

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has now stretched to 70 days.
Elsewhere in Ukraine on Wednesday, an image showed burning vehicles after missiles hit an oil depot in territory controlled by Russian-backed separatist forces in Makiivka, about 95 miles east of the city of Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, according to the Associated Press.
