We already have 133 sentences passed. And I would like to note that no acquittal was passed during the trial in any of the cases. That is, the judges recognized the evidence as sufficient, proper and having proved the person's guilt comprehensively," Dmytro Chubenko, spokesman for the Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor's Office said during the national news telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also reported that about 14,000 war crimes have been committed in the region. About 10,000 of them relate to shelling civilian infrastructure and injuring and killing civilians.
