“There were rapes of underage girls” in the videos she continued.
“They are not people, but animals,” the MP said of the Tornado troops and officers.
Prosecutors in Ukraine announced that eight fighters from the Tornado unit were arrested and charged with kidnapping, torture, looting and also gang raping a man in the town of Lisichansk in Lugansk Region of the country.
The Tornado unit was formed in October 2014 as part of Ukrainian Interior Ministry. It was linked to the Shakhtersk volunteer battalion, which was disbanded for systematic looting.
