WorldRussiaBodies of 20 men in civilian clothes found lying on street in Bucha near Kyiv

The bodies of around 20 men in civilian clothes were traced lying in a single street on Saturday after Ukrainian forces retook the town of Bucha near Kyiv from Russian troops, as quoted by several reports.

One of the bodies of the men, who died, had his hands tied, & the corpses were spread over several hundred metres (yards) of the residential road in the suburban town northwest of the capital.

The reason for death was not immediately clear, although at least one person had what appeared to be a large head wound.

Russian forces recently withdrew from several towns near Kyiv after Moscow’s bid to surround the capital failed, with Ukraine stating that Bucha had been “liberated”.

But the town had been left devastated by the fighting, with gaping holes from shell explosions in apartment blocks and crushed cars littering the streets, as per the reports.

Sixteen of the 20 remains found on one street in Bucha were lying either on the pavement or by the verge. Three were sprawled in the middle of the road, and another was lying in the courtyard of a house.
An open Ukrainian passport lay on the ground next to the person who had his hands tied behind his back with a piece of white cloth.

All were wearing civilian clothes — winter coats, jackets or tracksuit tops, jeans or jogging bottoms, and trainers or boots.

Two of them lay near bicycles, while another was next to an abandoned car. Some lay face up, with their limbs askew, while others were lying face down.
