Ukraine today celebrates the anniversary of the liberation of Busha one year ago. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky described the massacred find in a Kiev suburb on social media as a “symbol of the occupier’s atrocities” and promises justice.
In Posha, on March 31 last year, the bodies of hundreds of dead civilians were found after the Russian army was driven out of the area after a failed attack on Kiev. Images of streets strewn with corpses spread around the world and led to criminal investigations into Russian war crimes. This investigation is still ongoing.
33 days of occupation. More than 1,400 dead, including 37 children. More than 175 people were found in mass graves and torture chambers. 9,000 Russian war crimes. We will never forgive “We will punish every perpetrator,” Zelensky told Telegram.
A summit organized by Ukraine to commemorate the Bucha massacre will be held later in the day. International heads of government are participating (digitally), including Mark Rutte, French President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian Prime Minister Alexandre de Croo.
