Russia faces extreme backlash as several bodies –  appeared to be civilians – were witnessed lying on the streets of Bucha, a region in the northwest of the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv.

The horrid images of Russian heinousness in the shape of dozens of corpses out in the open sky, carelessly dug graves and people’s cries for help led to strict actions against the country’s brutal acts. It was decided that the Kremlin should face harsh sanctions, especially a ban on fuel imports from Russia.

Many countries like Germany and France have decided to stand up in solidarity with Ukraine by banishing the diplomats of Russia from their countries, inferring them to be spies. The US

President Joe Biden has regarded President Vladimir Putin as a ‘war criminal’ and stated that he should face a war-crime trial. He outrightly called the reports of Russia’s vile acts in Bucha ‘brutal’ and ‘outrageous.’

“This guy is brutal and what’s happening in Bucha is outrageous, and everyone’s seen it,” Biden stated.

The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy left the capital, Kyiv, six weeks ago to witness the genocide conducted by Russian forces in Bucha. He pledged the United Nations to take strict actions against Russia, stating that the sanctions from the West aren’t enough. He was certain that atrocities are far greater in other cities, and Russia should be held accountable for failing humanity and ruthlessly taking the precious lives of hundreds of people.

“Now the world can see what the Russian military did in Bucha, but the world has yet to see what they have done in other occupied cities and regions of our country,” Zelenskyy told the Security Council in an address on Tuesday. He said Russian forces killed and tortured at least 300 people in the besieged city Bucha before troops pulled out of the town.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has dismissed the allegations directed toward Russia and called them a ‘stage-managed anti-Russian provocation.’ Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov also rejects the accusations of genocide, stating that the images contained “signs of video forgery and various fakes.”

The Ukrainian officials have claimed to witness 410 slain bodies in the regions around Kyiv, from where Russia pulled out its forces. It is said that their troops are aiming to gain control of the Donbas, the predominantly Russian-speaking industrial region.
