Bucha’s horror, in pictures

Bucha has lived through a real horror during the invasion of Ukraine. This city, northwest of kyiv, has left images for oblivion, with hundreds of civilian corpses in its streets. The Ukrainian government has accused Russia of handcuffing and murdering these peoplefound by the local army after regaining control of the town.

Zelensky has been blunt and has described these events as genocide, while Russia, through its Ministry of Defense, has denied this Sunday that his forces have committed war crimes during his occupation of the city of Bucha. In a statement collected by TASS, the Ministry assures that, during the time that Bucha was under the control of the Russian Armed Forces, “not a single local resident suffered violent actions” while “Ukrainian forces bombarded the city 24 hours a day with large caliber artillery, tanks and multiple launch rocket systems”.

What happened has generated the anger of the international community. The United States and the European Union have promised that there will soon be new sanctions and with a high probability, there will be an international investigation into what happened. The human rights organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) has warned of the need for a “professional exhumation” of the victims of the massacres in Bucha. “Families and authorities want to quickly rebury them, which is understandable, but could destroy evidence.”
