On Sunday, Ukrainian authorities accused Russian forces of committing war crimes and leaving behind a "scene from a horror movie" in Bucha, a city on the outskirts of Kyiv.

So far, the bodies of 410 civilians have been found in Kyiv-area towns that were recently retaken from Russian forces, Ukraine’s prosecutor-general, Iryna Venediktova, said.
