Ukraine struggles to identify Russians suspected of war crimes


YAHIDNE, Ukraine—After Russian troops withdrew from Yahidne in late March, Ukrainian war crimes investigators found a golden clue: a logbook with photos and personal information about members of one of the Russian military units that had occupied the city.

During their occupation of Yahidne throughout March, the Russians held over 300 people in the school’s basement, where 10 died. Six other bodies were also found scattered around the city after the Russians withdrew and a seventh person is missing, presumed dead.
