Ukraine atrocities: Bucha survivors recount Russia invasion close to Kyiv

Those that survived the Russian occupation close to Ukraine’s capital are talking out concerning the horrors they witnessed — and what comes subsequent.

In a village exterior Kyiv, Mariia Bilous stood just a few toes away from a Russian soldier as he held a gun to her boyfriend’s head. It was mid-March, and Russian forces had occupied Andriivka, the place she and her boyfriend fled after the warfare started, she mentioned. 

That night time, troopers had burst into the house the place they slept and demanded to know in the event that they had been hiding telephones or sharing army actions.
