New mass grave found near Kyiv after Russian withdrawal

Kyiv, Apr 10 (EFE).- Another mass grave with the bodies of civilians has been found, this time in Buzova, a village west of Kyiv that had been occupied by Russian forces for weeks, local officials said.

“We have found more dead civilians in a grave near the gas station in Buzova,” Taras Didych said, according to Ukrainian news agency Unian.

In the past week, several mass graves have been uncovered in areas that were liberated after being occupied by Russian forces since the invasion began in late February.

The chief of the local community which includes Buzova and several other adjacent villages added more than 10 cars were shot at on the highway heading west from Kyiv to Zhytomyr city.

“There are 14 villages in the community, some of which were under occupation. Now we are coming back to life. But during the occupation, we had our ‘hotspots.’ Many civilians died,” Didych said, adding that work was underway to restore electricity and gas supplies, as well as clear debris caused by the Russian invasion that began on February 24.

In his late night address on Saturday, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that Moscow was targeting the whole of Europe and that Russia’s aggression would not be limited to Ukraine and would “inevitably hit everyone”.

“The entire European project is a target for the Russian Federation,” he said. EFE
