Mass Graves in Kyiv Suburb of Bucha; Amnesty Int’l Documents Unlawful Killing of Civilians in Ukraine

Ukrainian officials are accusing Russia of committing war crimes by killing civilians. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and EU leaders condemned images of dead civilians in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha, where corpses were found littering the streets after Russian troops withdrew from the area, some with their hands bound behind their backs. On Friday, Amnesty International also published a report that independently verified Russia had violated international law in using banned cluster munitions and other weapons that indiscriminately kill civilians. “What’s been going on during more than a month now of conflict merits serious investigation and accountability for the perpetrators,” says Joanne Mariner, crisis response director at Amnesty International, who co-authored the report. “Given this relentless bombardment of civilian neighborhoods and districts, we’re calling for the establishment of safe humanitarian corridors to allow civilians to escape.”
