After the liberation of the city of Bucha (Kyiv Oblast), the terrible details of the Russian occupation began to reveal themselves. Hundreds of civilians were found dead in the city. Some bodies showed signs of torture. People were shot, and Russians tried to bury and burn them. World leaders have blamed Russia for these crimes, calling for an international investigation and placing new strong sanctions on Russia. The General Staff of the Armes Forces of Ukraine reported that the occupiers are regrouping in the Donetsk direction and preparing for the offensive. In particular, the transfer of the 37th separate assault brigade units of the Russian Federation was recorded. On Sunday, Ukrainian paratroopers took the Pripyat and thus established complete control of the Ukrainian-Belarusian border.
