A Ukrainian woman waits for the bodies of her sister and nephew to be found in the rubble of bombed-out apartments


A shocking photo of a woman waiting for the bodies of her sister and nephew to be found in the rubble of bombed-out apartments has been shared by Ukrainian government sources, exposing the lies of Putin’s spin doctor who denounced “false “War crimes on television. maintenance.

The photo, taken in Borodianka, a town near kyiv, shows the woman sitting in a chair as rescuers search desperately for survivors.

Residents say the Russians blocked rescue efforts, leaving people buried in rubble for a week before Putin’s forces finally withdrew.

The identity of the woman is unclear, although Ukrainian sources say her name is Liudmyla and she is from the town. Rescuers reportedly brought her a chair as she has been waiting for three days. The building was destroyed on March 1.

Ukraine announced on Thursday that it had recovered 26 bodies from under two destroyed buildings in the town of Borodianka, northwest of kyiv, again accusing Moscow of targeting civilian areas.

“Just in the rubble of two apartment buildings, 26 bodies were found,” Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova said on Facebook. “Only the civilian population was targeted: there is no military site here,” she said, adding that it was “impossible to predict” the number of additional deaths at the site.

Ukrainian President Zelensky warned this evening that the situation in Borodyanka is “much more horrific” than in Bucha.

The Ukrainian Parliament added in a tweet: “The destruction at Borodyanka was considered even worse than at Irpen and Bucha. The world will soon learn of the atrocities of the occupiers there, but now only one thing is clear – the ruined village.

“Of the 29 high-rise buildings, 21 were damaged, 8 of them were completely destroyed. Rescuers have been dismantling the debris for several days now, so the horrific findings will soon be known to all.

The shocking footage comes as Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov repeatedly refused to admit any wrongdoing and called images of war crimes committed by Russian soldiers ‘false’ and ‘lies’ in Ukraine.

He rejected allegations of a massacre in the Ukrainian town of Bucha as “a well-staged insinuation”, claiming that the bodies found in the streets were placed after the withdrawal of Russian troops.

“We live in a time of fakes and lies that we encounter every day,” he said, speaking in English via video link from Moscow.

“We deny that the Russian military could have anything in common with these atrocities and that corpses were shown on the streets of Bucha.”

Moscow has been accused of war crimes and genocide after photos emerged from the suburban town of Bucha, near kyiv, which showed streets littered with the bodies of civilians, many with their hands behind their backs, wounds shot and signs of torture.

But Ukrainian officials have warned other areas nearby may have seen worse atrocities and Bucha may be just the start.

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova told Ukrainian TV that a “similar humanitarian situation” to Bucha exists in other parts of the country where Russian forces have recently moved, such as areas around the northern cities of Sumy and Chernihiv. .

She also said the situation in Borodyanka, which is further from kyiv and was also held by Russian forces until recently, could be even worse.

Venediktova did not specify what exactly happened in Borodyanka, but said the “worst situation in terms of casualties” is there.
