Quote: "Behind these numbers, not only women are among the victims, 39 are men. [Of all the victims – ed.], 13 are minors, among them a boy. We know about these cases only because these people found the strength to speak. How many suffer in silence, especially in the occupied territories – we do not know."

Details: Zelenska emphasized that the number and open nature of rape of peaceful Ukrainians gives confidence that this is a deliberate policy of the Russian army.

"This is their conscious psychological and physical weapon against Ukrainians," the president's wife emphasised.
