Bucha: Russia investigates killing of civilians in Kyiv suburb
Russia’s Investigative Committee has instructed its agents to analyze reports of civilian killings in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha.
The Chairman of the Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, gave the instruction echoing the Russian Defense Ministry’s denial of any involvement in the killings.
“According to our information, in order to discredit the Russian military personnel, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine distributed to the Western media videos filmed in the city of Bucha, Kyiv region, as evidence of the massacre of civilians,” a statement from the Investigative Committee reads.
Recall that shocking images of the bodies of civilians were found on the streets in Bucha.
The images were released after Russian soldiers left Kyiv, and they sparked an international outcry.
According to preliminary information, more civilian bodies are expected to be retrieved in the Kyiv region, Ukraine’s interior minister told reporters on Monday.
Without giving any convincing evidence, the Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday that reports of civilian killings in Bucha were “false.”
Over the tragedy in Bucha, Western politicians have called for war crimes investigations and more penalties against Russia.
