The court recognized the killings of the population of the Voronezh region during World War II as genocide


The Voronezh Regional Court recognized the extermination of the region’s population in 1942-1943 as genocide. Prosecutor Nikolai Savrun noted that the extermination of local residents was one of the invaders’ goals.

It is noted that at least 274,983 people fell victim to the atrocities of the invaders, among whom were both prisoners of war and civilians. Savrun filed a claim recognizing the actions of the Nazis as war crimes and genocide of the peoples of the USSR.

The court heard from eyewitnesses, including concentration camp prisoners, as well as experts studying the subject of the occupation of the Voronezh region during the Great Patriotic War. Consideration of the case was completed on May 23, 2023, and after the hearing, the final verdict was delivered.

Earlier, the historian told about the fate of a war child who managed to escape from a concentration camp. He participated in several sabotages within an underground group, and also defused a German bomb.
