Russian troops slaughtered a Ukrainian policeman’s family, including his newborn baby and 6-year-old daughter — all while his brother heard it in a phone call, according to reports.
Policeman Oleg Fedko, 30, was working in the Kherson region when his parents and partner picked up his kids to keep them safe last Thursday, the day Russia launched its war, according to the Sun, citing local reports.
His brother, Denis Fedko, told local media that he had been on the phone with their mother, Anna, when he heard her pleading with Russian troops — and then the gunshots as everyone in the two cars was slaughtered.
“I kept hearing my mother yelling that there were children [in the car] and ‘How can you [do that]?’” he reportedly said, saying he heard newborn baby Ivan “crying loudly.”
“And then I heard shots,” he said, according to the report.
“Then there was silence … and then shots again.
“There were two bursts, each two to three shots long. I realized they were finishing them off,” he said.
The brothers’ 56-year-old parents were both killed, along with the cop’s partner, Irina, 27, and their two kids — baby Ivan and his 6-year-old sister, Sofia, the paper said.
