Russia killed Bucha civilians in deliberate massacre, Ukraine says

The images of bodies strewn across the roads in Bucha have shocked the world and drawn widespread condemnation.

Ukraine has called the killings a deliberate massacre while human rights groups are accusing Russia of ‘apparent war crimes.’

The killing of civilians in towns like Bucha has been revealed following the retreat of Russian forces from areas around the capital Kyiv.

Russia denies claims of mass civilian killings.

Russia’s retreat has allowed Ukrainian forces to hand out aid to civilians in the city of Irpin.

But in the south, Russian troops have continued their bombardments – this time striking near the port city of Odesa.
