In the courtyard of the forensic institute where the morgue is located, the snow has not stopped falling over the bodies wrapped in gray plastic bags waiting to be evacuated.
Some of the bodies of the victims of the Russian invasion were laid on the floor due to lack of space.
The place was filled with the smell of corpses mixed with disinfectant.
The doctors were forced to perform an autopsy in unhygienic conditions.
Reported CNAnaked bodies lay on the street of the refrigerated warehouse, where the death toll from the bombing a few days earlier near Otchakiv piled up.
Vladimir, a morgue employee who gave only his first name, said he had never experienced this before.
