The strange “graveyard” of Russian missiles in eastern Ukraine


KHARKIV, Ukraine (AP) — The eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv has a peculiar “graveyard,” reminiscent of some of the worst damage since the Russian invasion: debris from rockets used against that city and its inhabitants.

The graveyard has over a thousand missiles, or parts of them. Local authorities hope to help provide information for any prosecution cases against Russian authorities and soldiers. And one day, perhaps, they will be part of a museum of atrocities in the country.

The bluish cylinders are lined up in rows according to their size, giving an impressive but shocking aerial view.

Dmytro Chubenko, spokesman for the Kharkiv region prosecutor’s office, said the rockets had been collected since the first attacks, and after some time officials decided to organize them by type.

“This is evidence that an international criminal tribunal would use,” he said during a site visit. He mentioned that some specialists have already come to the city to analyze the material.

The missiles, he added, were used against some important residential areas, such as North Saltivka and Oleksiivka. He said authorities estimate that at least 1,700 people were killed by the shelling, including 44 children, in and around Kharkiv.

In the summer, buildings in areas like Saltivka were badly damaged, some blackened and others in ruins. There was virtually no activity, with shops closed and apartments destroyed. Winter hasn’t improved anything.

“We have lost everything, and it is not at all clear what we can expect in the future,” said Anna, a North Saltivka resident who left months ago and has not given his surname for security reasons.

Ihor Deshpetko, 44, still lives in Kharkiv, despite what he has to endure.

“There is no heating in my house, (and) unfortunately there won’t be until the end of winter,” he said, adding that he now tends to call the neighborhood where he lives the “black neighborhood”.

Back at the missile ‘graveyard’, Chubenko of the prosecutors’ office said they would keep the rockets as long as necessary so that any expert or prosecutor could take the information they need to use as evidence against the Russians. .

And after that?

“I don’t know what will happen next,” he said. “Maybe we’ll make a museum.”
