A clip posted on Twitter has laid bare the mess left behind by soldiers in Izyum after they were pushed out of the city.

The Defense of Ukraine account shared the video as Kyiv continues to publicise its successful counteroffensive in the Kharkiv region.

In response to Ukraine's measure, Putin has announced a mobilisation order for 300,000 Russian reserve fighters.

The Defense of Ukraine said of the clip: "Neatness is not the best virtue of the russian military (sic).

"But like the ancient Sumerians, they stick to their calendar. 08.09.22 - their last day in Izyum, for some of them the last day of their lives."

In the video a voice can be heard saying in Ukrainian: "September 8, 2022.

In the video itself clothes and equipment can be seen scattered everywhere around a room and outside in a yard.

It is thought that the Kremlin's army had little time to prepare before they were forced to flee.

However, Ukraine's reclaiming of Izyum, a city in the east of the country, uncovered horrors left behind by the Russians.

A mass burial site was exhumed and found to contain the bodies of 146 citizens, including two children.

Many of the dead were innocent civilians, with fears that they suffered torture and a violent death.

The Kharkiv governor, Oleh Synehubov, said: "There are bodies with tied hands and traces of torture.

"The deceased were also found to have explosive, shrapnel and stab wounds."
