Zelensky on Buch’s second anniversary: ​​”Russia destroyed morality here”


On the second anniversary of the liberation of Kyiv region from the Russian army, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky visited the city of Bucha and honored the memory of civilians killed during the occupation.

As “Ukrainskaya Pravda” reports, Zelensky installed a lamp at the Memorial Wall near the Church of St. Andrew the First-Called Apostle and All Saints. The memory wall consists of several slabs, each of which has plaques with engraved names of the dead. Now the memorial contains 509 names of civilians who have been identified. Some plates are still nameless.”

“Our people killed by the occupiers, whose bodies were lying on the streets of Bucha, were evidence that no one in the world can remain aloof from this battle,” Zelensky said, adding that it was here that Russia “destroyed its morals and created violence and hatred with its ideology”.

  • The Russian army entered Bucha on February 27, 2022. After her retreat at the end of March, local authorities and journalists reported the discovery of more than 400 bodies of civilians. It was established that most of the dead were shot, some died from torture. The facts of murders, rapes and robberies of civilians by the Russian military in Buche have been confirmed by international organizations such as the UN and OSCE.
  • On the second anniversary of the events, the Ukrainian police reported that 1,190 bodies of the dead have been found in the Buchansk district, and that these numbers are not final. In addition, 514 residents of the Kyiv region are considered missing.
  • Russia denies its involvement in the killings of civilians in Bucha, calling what happened a “provocation and staging”. The authorities are pursuing Russians who talk on social networks about what happened under the criminal article about spreading fakes about the Russian army. Dozens of people were sentenced to long prison terms in Russia for this article.
