Bucha massacre. Russians killed, raped, and tortured people in the Kyiv region
From March 3 to April 1, 2022, the Russian military occupied the city of Bucha in the suburbs of Kyiv.
On April 2, the whole world was terrified. The first videos and photos of Bucha liberated from the Russians became public. The Russians brutally killed innocent people for no reason.
As of June 7, Ukrainian law enforcement officers have found 1 137 bodies of Ukrainian citizens killed by Russian occupiers in the Bucha district. In particular, 461 murdered victims are from the city of Bucha, Ihor Klymenko, Head of the National Police of Ukraine, reported.
International and Ukrainian media are spreading more and more new eyewitness reports of murders, torture, shootings in the middle of the street, rape of women and children, animal cruelty, and more.
90% of people died from shootings, and they had bullet wounds. Rescuers and soldiers found residents’ bodies in private estates, parks, squares, and mass graves.
“We located three places in Bucha: the territory of an agricultural machinery enterprise, where the Russian occupiers dumped people’s bodies with their hands tied. Also, we found people with their hands tied and bullet wounds at Vokzalna and Yablunska streets and near children’s camp,” said Mayor Anatoliy Fedoruk.
