Russia Ukraine conflict: Russia accused of war crimes over civilian killings in Bucha

Ukraine’s president has said the scale of atrocities being unearthed in Bucha makes it harder for him to negotiate with Russia.

Ukrainian forces in the city on the outskirts of Kyiv say they have found dead civilians strewn along the road, some with hands tied, gunshot wounds and evidence of torture.

There has been a growing international outcry – Britain described the attacks as “barbaric” while President Biden said Vladimir Putin was a war criminal who should face trial.
