Extreme torture from Russian troops includes shocking allegations of sawing off enemies' teeth.
From sawing his teeth out of his head to electrocuting him, the soldiers are said to have tortured a man and his wife in horrific ways.
The Russian army seized Kherson in early spring last year and after the city was liberated, Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) discovered torture chambers and hundreds of graves spread across the city.

Kherson locals told how the Russian military abducted and tortured people in basements, stole cars, looted homes, and forced them to work for the occupation authorities by issuing death threats.
One woman, Olha Kuts said that she listened, helpless, as her husband screamed in pain at the hands of the Russians.
She told the Insider: "My husband was being beaten in a nearby cell. They were treating men particularly harshly.
"I heard my husband's inhuman screams, which were mixed with the screams of other men – they were squealing in pain.
"They kept moralizing me and then sent me “to think” in a damp, cold cell with bare concrete, two chairs and shabby walls.
"They would hit me with anything they could find – police batons, bottles. They just hit me and left.
"Once I dared to ask why they were doing this, and the answer was simple: because I am Ukrainian and we all harass the Russian-speaking population in Kherson."

She added: "I was luckier than my husband: I wasn’t electrocuted.
"Unfortunately, my husband was electrocuted, had his back teeth sawn off, and ribs fractured from frequent beatings.
"I saw him lose consciousness and the soldiers literally had to drag his body into the cell.
"They could leave him there for four days or a week without food or water.
"In the first month he was only physically traumatized, and when my husband was barely alive, they started crushing him mentally."
