President Zelensky: Over 300 Bucha residents murdered and tortured by Russian troops

In the city of Bucha, Kyiv Region, over 300 civilians have been murdered and tortured to death by Russian troops.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We have just begun an investigation into all that the occupiers have done. At present, there is information about more than three hundred people killed and tortured in Bucha alone. It is likely that the list of victims will be much larger when the whole city is checked,” Zelensky told.

In his words, Bucha is just one of the Ukrainian cities captured by the Russian military. According to the available information, the number of victims can be even higher in Borodianka and other liberated settlements.

 “In many villages of the liberated districts of the Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy regions, the occupiers did things that the locals had not seen even during the Nazi occupation 80 years ago,” Zelensky stressed.

A reminder that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has visited the settlements liberated from Russian invaders in Kyiv Region, namely Bucha, Irpin and Stoianka.
