Russian forces have withdrawn from towns and cities near Kyiv, but no one is happy about it. They’ve left behind a horrible seen, that looks like it came straight out of a horror movie. Over three-hundred residents of Dnipro, Ukraine were killed. The streets were littered with bodies, wearing civilian clothing, some with their hands and feet tied. Kyiv, Irpin, and Bucha were in a similar condition.

Streets littered with bodies. Bodies buried in makeshift conditions. There is talk of women, children and the elderly among the victims, said Olaf Scholz, the Chancellor of Germany, horrified by footage of Bucha.

At least two-hundred eighty bodies have been found buried in mass graves in Bucha.  Russia has refused to take responsibility for the killing of civilians around Kyiv. Its defense ministry has said that the photos and videos are a staged performance by the Kyiv regime, similar to what they said about the bombing of a children’s and maternity hospital in Mariupol. Russia has repeatedly said that Ukraine has been staging such atrocities with no evidence, although the conditions on the ground show plenty of evidence that Russia has been targeting civilians.

Hopefully Ukraine will be able to keep fighting long enough for Russian forces to run out, or for anything to change, President Biden is working to strengthen humanitarian aid, with the hopes that it will actually get to Ukrainian citizens
