After the liberation of Kyiv Oblast by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, dozens of bodies of civilians tortured and killed by Russian invaders, as well as mass graves with hundreds of bodies of Ukrainians have been found outside the capital city, in particular in the towns of Bucha and Irpin, and along the Zhytomyr highway.

NV publishes this terrible footage from Kyiv Oblast - evidence of a Russian-made genocide against peaceful Ukrainian people.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING FOOTAGE CONTAINS DISTURBING IMAGERY

In Bucha, dozens of bodies of executed civilians are lying right in the middle of the street. According to law enforcement officers, the invaders booby-trapped the bodies with explosives while retreating.

"Some lie with sightless eyes staring at Ukraine's overcast sky, some lie face down on the tarmac,” a press photographer from French news agency Agence France-Presse reported on April 1.

“One has his hands tied behind his back with a white cloth, his Ukrainian passport left open beside his corpse.”

These pictures provide irrefutable proof that the Russian invaders purposefully, and mercilessly, slaughtered local residents who attempted to flee in their own vehicles.

There is evidence that they had executed people who were simply moving around the town on bicycles, and who did not pose any threat.

Civilians killed in Bucha are lying in yards, near houses, and on the roads. Some have their hands tied behind their backs. There are signs of torture that many have been tortured

According to surviving eyewitnesses, the invaders killed young men and anyone "who they did not like."

"Kyiv region. 21st century Hell,” tweeted presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak on April 3.

“Bodies of men and women, who were killed with their hands tied. The worst crimes of Nazism have returned to Europe. This was purposely done by Russia.”

At least one mass grave has been unearthed in Bucha, where the Ukrainian military found the bodies of 280 residents, murdered, with their hands tied behind their back.

In another mass grave, soldiers found the body of Motyzhyn village headwoman Olha Sukhenko, whom the Russians, along with her husband, abducted on March 23. Her husband was found, his mutilated body bearing signs of torture, dumped in a manhole.

Many shallow and hastily-dug graves, containing murdered local residents, were found in and around the city - they were likely buried by their neighbors.

Carcasses of dozens of cars, and the defiled bodies of civilians attempting to flee the invasion, litter the Zhytomyr highway, connecting Kyiv to Zhytomyr, a northern regional hub city.

Their bodies lie where they were murdered, in the middle of highways outside Kyiv.

The bodies of five naked women were found on the roadside under a blanket 20 kilometers from Kyiv, whom the Russian invaders had dumped onto car tires and tried to set on fire.

“It's hard to even imagine what these women went through before they died,” press photographer Igor Zakharenko reported via Telegram messenger on April 3.

“Raped, tortured, burned…”

Civilian infrastructure, shops, and residential buildings have been completely destroyed in many of the towns liberated from the Russians.

Local residents, who had lived under occupation for almost a month, were relieved to finally see Ukraine’s defenders secure their towns from the enemy.

Early on Feb. 24, 2022, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin announced a "special military operation" in Ukraine.

Russian troops, which had been amassing near the Ukrainian borders for four months, launched a full-scale invasion along the entire perimeter of the Russian-Ukrainian, as well as Belarusian-Ukrainian borders.

Putin declared the need for "demilitarization" and "denazification" of Ukraine to be the main goal of the war of conquest.

But in fact, Russian troops are destroying civilian infrastructure, torturing, raping and killing civilians, as well as deporting residents of the temporarily occupied territories.

Russia is committing genocide against the Ukrainian people.
