Before meeting with Dmytro Kuleba and Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Zbigniew Rau visited war-torn towns in Kyiv region.

Bucha, Irpin, Hostomel, and Borodianka, which were once peaceful developing Ukrainian towns, all of them will go down in history as towns where war crimes were committed, where there was brutal and violent behavior against the civilian population,” the politician said.
