USA Updates Ukraine police say 900 civilians found dead in Kyiv
Local authorities said on Friday that Russian forces withdrew from the Kyiv region have left the bodies of more than 900 Ukrainians killed.
Police said the vast majority of victims were “simply killed” by gunfire in the area around the capital. The grave body count continued to rise as corpses were uncovered under rubble and in mass graves.
Andrey Nebitov, the head of the capital’s regional police force, estimated that 95 percent of bodies trapped in the area were shot, and civilians who reinforced pro-Ukraine views were hunted down and murdered. .
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky accused the troops of capturing in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions.
“The occupiers feel that this will make it easier for them to control the area. But they are very wrong. They are making a fool of themselves, ”said Zelensky. “Russia’s problem is that it is not accepted by the entire Ukrainian people – and will never be accepted. Russia has lost Ukraine forever.”
Zelensky told CNN on Friday that the death toll coincides with another grim revelation Between 2,500 and 3,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed. Another 10,000 were wounded in the attack.
Officials provided updates on the atrocities as Russia’s defense ministry promised to increase airstrikes on the capital in retaliation for the destruction of its flagship warship, which was sunk by Ukrainian missiles on Thursday.
The loss of the 12,500-ton Black Sea flagship is the latest embarrassment during the alleged superpower’s unprovoked offensive by the armed forces. CNN reported that US intelligence officials suspected the ship was carrying nuclear weapons when it sank.
Russia also accused Ukraine of killing seven people and damaging 100 residential buildings with attacks on its Bryansk region, across the country’s shared border, as it prepared for new attacks on formerly disputed areas.
“Any terrorist attack or sabotage in Russian territory by the Kyiv nationalist regime will result in an increase in the number and scale of missile strikes against targets in Kiev,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told state-run news agency TASS.
Local leaders said Ukrainian defenders held up improperly against Russian advances at Mariupol’s Donbass port, while shelling a Kharkiv neighborhood killed seven people – including an infant – and wounded 34 others.
Buka still appears to have suffered the most atrocities, in which 350 people were tied up and shot.
US lawmakers visited the Buka region this week and reported “indisputable evidence of Putin’s war crimes”.
