The duo purportedly unleashed chaos in the occupied Kherson Oblast of southern Ukraine, their motivation reportedly being a quest for alcohol.

As per the Telegram channel VChK-OGPU, they resorted to violence upon being denied alcohol, resulting in the killing of residents and the burning of their homes.

Among the casualties were Lyubov Tymchak, the Russian-appointed head of Abrikosovka village, and her spouse. The soldiers are accused of mutilating the couple's bodies and attempting to incinerate them.

The incident is believed to have stemmed from Tymchak's refusal to provide them with empty houses, according to reports.
