More than 1,000 bodies have been found in or around Bucha with many showing signs of torture
The bodies of three men have been found bound in Bucha with several gunshot wounds in some cases, which police say indicate that they had been tortured.
In general, more than 1,000 bodies were found in or around Bucha, a town northwest of Kyiv, with many showing signs of torture. They were found after Russian troops withdrew in April 2022.
The apparent evidence of atrocities has prompted calls from several countries and the UN and the International Criminal Court (ICC) for investigations to determine whether war crimes were committed.
In a video posted on YouTube on April 30, 2022, Kyiv regional police chief Andrii Nebytov said bullet wounds in the men’s extremities showed they had been tortured, adding: “Finally, each of the men was shot in the ear.”
