Dead Civilians in Bucha Spark International Outrage

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Photographers and Ukrainian officials are reporting on bodies of dead civilians strewn in the streets of Bucha, Ukraine, sparking outrage internationally and across the political spectrum as Russia's invasion of Ukraine enters its second month.

Satellite images are also showing a mass grave at the Church of St. Andrew and Pyervozvannoho All Saints in Bucha, which is a suburb of the capital of Kyiv.  Russian troops have now withdrawn from Bucha after five weeks of firefights.  

A number of Western leaders, including U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, continue to call for increasing sanctions on Russia and for war crimes investigations. The United Nations Security Council is expected to consider war crimes in Bucha and other cities when it meets on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says efforts are being made to restore water and electricity to Bucha, as well as to reestablish infrastructure and medical facilities.
