A sobering and graphic account of alleged atrocities at the hands of Russian soldiers.

“They killed entire families, adults and children and they tried to burn the bodies,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Zelenskyy demanded accountability telling world leaders that Russia’s actions are no different than a terror group.

“The most terrible war crimes of all times we see since the end of World War II,” he said.

One big distinction he says is that Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

“Where is the security the security council is supposed to guarantee?” Zelenskyy asked.

His address comes just one day after visiting mass graves in Bucha, Ukraine. The scene was a massacre exposed for the world to see. A growing number of leaders, including President Biden, want Russian president Vladimir Putin on trial for war crimes.

“It’s a deliberate campaign to kill, to torture, to write to commit atrocities,” said Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

NATO is now gathering evidence to prove it, according to the alliance’s U.S. ambassador. Yet the Kremlin is doubling down, calling the massacre, “fake.”
