The Rosgvardia unit Vityaz, the 76th Guards Air Assault Division from Pskov, and Chechen units all took part in the war crimes committed by the Russian army in Bucha near Kyiv, Reuters reports.

The agency on May 5 published a detailed investigation into the atrocities by the Russian invaders against the civilian population, which came to light after the defeated Russian army retreated from the northern part of Ukraine.

Reportedly, after interviewing more than 90 residents of Bucha, analyzing many photos and videos, and examining documents left by the invaders, the journalists identified several Russian military personnel involved in the massacres of Ukrainians.
