One of the units of the Russian occupiers involved in the atrocities in Bucha, Kyiv region, suffered losses near Izium in the Kharkiv region.
“The units of the 64th separate motorised rifle brigade, which took an active part in the mass killings, torture, and rape of civilians in the Ukrainian town of Bucha, operate now in the area of Izium and have already suffered losses,” reads the morning report of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Meanwhile, social media users spread information that the Ukrainian military captured several occupiers of this brigade during a counterattack. They are currently under investigation. People involved in crimes in the Kyiv region seem to be identified.
As Bucha Mayor Anatoliy Fedoruk posted on Facebook, the exhumation of the bodies of residents killed during the occupation is coming to an end in the town.
“An important and complicated process is coming to an end in Bucha – the collection and exhumation of the bodies of the killed and deceased in the territory of Bucha community. The figure we have now is 412. But it will still be clarified at the level of investigators and experts who work 24/7. This means that every third killed in the Kyiv region is a resident of Bucha. We still count the wounded,” the mayor noted.
According to him, among the victims of the invaders are those who were killed, shot dead, and tortured; burnt bodies of civilians were found. There are hospital patients who were not buried after 24 February because the Russians did not allow the funeral service to enter the cemetery. The bodies of several members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were also found.
