Following the publication of a photograph showing a severed head impaled on a pole, Russian forces have been accused of committing other atrocities.

The image depicts a house with a sloping roof and an untidy garden.
There is a sign that reads "21 Nagorna Street" that is attached to a wall. There is a stick in the garden that has a decomposing head impaled on it in one corner of the space. Behind it, on smaller stakes, are two hands that have been cut. It is believed that the photograph was taken toward the end of the month of July.
