“House of Cards” screenwriter is filming a documentary about Russians’ atrocities in Bucha
“House of Cards” showrunner Beau Willimon has traveled to Bucha, Ukraine, to document the atrocities of the Russian invasion and capture the “heroic resistance” of the Ukrainian people, the Bucha City Council announced on April 15, 2022.
“The playwright wants to tell the whole world the truth about the genocide of Ukrainians and the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people,” the city council announced on Facebook.
Russian forces initially launched an offensive aiming to capture Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv. After more than a month of fighting, Russian forces withdrew, leaving horrors in their wake. Bucha, near Kyiv, has gained international notoriety as a key site of Russian atrocities. Bucha’s mayor has claimed that the city discovered 400 bodies so far.
