Tuesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke to the UN Security Council describing the horrors he witnessed in the town of Bucha the day before:

“The Russian military surge and purposefully killed anyone who served our country. They shot and killed women outside their houses when they just tried to call someone who is alive. They killed entire families, adults and children, and they tried to burn the bodies. I am addressing you on behalf of the people who honor the memory of the deceased every single day and the memory of the civilians who died, they were shot and killed in the back of their head after being tortured. Some of them were shot on the streets.” 


He said that the Russians killed civilians “just for their pleasure.”


“They cut off limbs, slashed their throats, women raped and killed in front of their children. Their tongues were pulled out only because the aggressor did not hear what they wanted to hear from them,” Zelensky added.

He said these actions are no different than “other terrorists.”
