What may be one of Ukraine’s largest Stalin-era mass graves has been identified by researchers.

The remains of between 5,000 and 8,000 people were found in 29 graves in the southern city of Odessa.

The site, believed to date back to the late 1930s, was uncovered during exploration works for a planned expansion of an airport.

Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are believed to have died during Joseph Stalin’s rule of the Soviet Union.
