U.S. ambassador, Ukraine’s prosecutor general visit war-torn Borodianka

Newly-appointed U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget A. Brink and Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova visited Borodyanka, one of the settlements outside Kyiv that have witnessed heinous atrocities by Russian occupation forces.

The ambassador posted a tweet about the visit, seen by Ukrinform.

“Borodyanka has suffered horribly. Bearing witness to atrocities committed in Russia’s brutal war, including families killed in their own homes, only strengthens my resolve to do everything we can to hold the perpetrators of these awful crimes to account,” Ambassador Brink tweeted.

As noted by the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, in addition to direct support to the Prosecutor General’s Office, the United States “supports international investigations to ensure accountability for atrocities committed in Ukraine.”

Those responsible for war crimes - including direct perpetrators and those who ordered them - must face justice, the embassy stressed.

As reported earlier, referring to a statement by top prosecutor Iryna Venediktova of April 4, the worst situation of civilian victims since Russian invasion was confirmed precisely in Borodianka.
