Database of 251 videos exposes the horrors of war in Ukraine

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is one of the most documented wars ever. Citizens, public officials and soldiers have regularly posted videos that show the dead bodies in neighborhoods, the trails of missiles streaking through the skies and the smoldering ruins of entire towns.

Six months later, the fighting shows no sign of ending. The violence has tinged every aspect of Ukrainian life. Prosecutors in the country have identified about 26,000 possible war crimes committed by Russian forces.

The Washington Post’s visual forensics team started to verify and catalogue videos from the war the day Russia’s invasion began. This work is searchable in a database that continues to be updated. The videos have been uploaded in raw format; graphic content is clearly marked.

Certain trends are apparent:

  • Little has been spared. Houses, apartment buildings and playgrounds have been destroyed across Ukraine. 
    See videos of residential areas

     
  • Patients seeking care became victims of war. A maternity hospital, a cancer ward and a children’s dental clinic are among dozens of health facilities that have been struck.

  • It’s not always clear who is responsible. Russia and Ukraine blamed each other for a July blast in eastern Ukraine that killed dozens of Ukrainian prisoners of war — a possible war crime.
