The actions of the Russian army in peaceful cities of Kyiv region must be recognized by the world community as genocide of the Ukrainians — President of Ukraine Zelenskyy
“This is a war crime and it will be recognized by the world as genocide. The fact that you are here today and see what happened — we know thousands of people are killed and tortured, with severed limbs, raped women, murdered children — I think this is genocide,” President of Ukraine Zelenskyy told reporters during a trip to the town of Bucha, Kyiv region.
He thanked the journalists of international publications who joined him on the trip.
“We really want you to show the world what happened here, what the Russian military did, what the Russian Federation did in peaceful Ukraine,” the President stressed.
Zelenskyy also expressed confidence that all war criminals involved in the killings and abuse of civilians in the Ukrainian territories occupied by Russia will be held accountable.
