Heartbreaking clue that identified make-up blogger slaughtered by Putin’s troops after harrowing photo shocked the world

A MAKEUP blogger killed in the Bucha massacre was identified by her distinctive painted nails in a harrowing picture.

Iryna Filkina liked to paint a distinctive heart painted onto one nail and it can be seen in the image that shocked the world.

The 52-year-old Ukrainian had been training as a make-up artist and posted beauty tutorials to her social media pages before she brutally murdered.

In a further twist, it’s believed Iryna was the cyclist seen in harrowing drone footage being blasted by a Russian tank.

She was identified by Anastasiia Subacheva, a makeup artist from the nearby city of Gostomel, who was giving Iryna makeup lessons.

“When I saw it, I felt physically like my heart started to break,” she told the New York Times.

Harrowing images from Bucha after Vladimir Putin’s forces withdrew show bodies of civilians strewn on the road and in shallow graves – many with bound hands and signs of torture.

Anastasiia said she instantly recognised Iryna’s manicured hand with red and white polish and a heart painted on one nail.

She had seen it many times holding a brush or lipstick, or spreading foundation or eye shadow during her makeup lessons.

Iryna’s daughter, Olha Shchyruk, who had fled Bucha after the war started, said she had learned on March 6 that her mother had been shot the previous day while returning from work on her bicycle.

In a post on the Telegram social media app, she somehow hoped her mum might still be alive.

But on Friday – Iryna’s birthday – she learned that the picture of the woman lying on the ground was   her mum.

“I understand that it wasn’t possible, because she hadn’t been in touch for a month,” she said.

“But a child will always be waiting for her mother. Even if there was no manicure, I would have recognized it was my mother.”

Anastasiia said that Iryna, who worked as a heating station operator, was excited about an upcoming concert by the Ukrainian pop diva Olya Polyakova.

It comes as…

During their classes she talked about what she would wear and how she would do her makeup for the event.

Iryna also dreamed increasing of her Instagram following, the makeup artist said.

Anastasiia recalls that Iryna once told her: “I finally understood the most important thing: You need to love yourself and live for yourself.  Finally I will live the way I want.”

In footage that emerged earlier this week, the cyclist can be seen coming down the road, unaware of a Russian armoured column, with their distinctive Z markings, hidden by houses to their left.

As the cyclist gets off their bike at a junction, they push it around the corner but come into the sight of a BMD-2 infantry fighting vehicle standing down the road.

At that point smoke can be seen coming from the barrel of its cannon as it blasts down the street.

The fate of the cyclist cannot immediately be seen as they are hidden behind a fence but they are not seen moving any further down the street.
