A Russian tv station ran a horrific story, which looks like myth-making so far. It describes a crucifiction allegedly conducted by Kievan forces:
The report featured a woman named as Galina Pyshnyak, who was interviewed at a refugee camp in Russia, describing the incident that she labelled an act of revenge.
"They gathered women on the square because there are no more men. Women, girls, old people," Pyshnyak said.
"They took a child of around three years old, a little boy in his underwear and a T-shirt and nailed him to a notice board like Jesus. One was nailing him and two others holding him."
We should expect more Gothic efforts in this war, probably from both sides. Horror tales have wide appeal and deep emotional resonance.
