The United States has informed the United Nations it has credible information showing that Moscow is compiling lists of Ukrainians "to be killed or sent to camps following a military occupation," according to a letter to the U.N. human rights chief obtained by The Washington Post on Sunday night.

The letter alleges that Moscow's post-invasion planning would involve torture, forced disappearances and "widespread human suffering." It does not describe the nature of the intelligence that undergirds its assessment.
