There is ample evidence that Russian destroy peaceful cities, torture and kill civilians - Zelenskyy

The cities are simply ruined. Burnt military equipment on the roads, destroyed cars. It is especially hard to look at the traces of bullets on cars with the inscription "Children".

President visited the cities in the Kyiv region, which were liberated from the occupiers. Stoyanka, Irpin, Bucha.


The area does not look like yesterday. The bodies of killed people killed Ukrainians have already been taken from most streets. But in the yards, in the houses, the dead still remain.


The cities are simply ruined. Burnt military equipment on the roads, destroyed cars. It is especially hard to look at the traces of bullets on cars with the inscription "Children".



An investigation has begun into all that the occupiers have done. At present, there is information about more than three hundred people killed and tortured in Bucha alone. It is likely that the list of victims will be much larger when the whole city is checked. And this is only one city.


One of the many Ukrainian communities that the Russian military managed to seize.


There is already information that the number of victims of the occupiers may be even higher in Borodyanka and some other liberated cities. In many villages of the liberated districts of the Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy regions, the occupiers did things that the locals had not seen even during the Nazi occupation 80 years ago. The occupiers will definitely bear responsibility for this.



Govt is already doing everything possible to identify all the Russian military involved in these crimes as soon as possible. Everything to punish them. This will be a joint work of our state with the European Union and international institutions, in particular with the International Criminal Court.


President discussed this issue with the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. And also Chancellor of Austria Nehammer. And agreed on his visit to Ukraine in the near future.


President also discussed the investigation into the war crimes of Russian troops with Polish President Duda. Govt also talked about new sanctions against Russia, and humanitarian and defence cooperation with Poland.


All crimes of the occupiers are documented. The necessary procedural basis is provided for bringing the guilty Russian military to justice for every crime they commit.


President would like to emphasize that govt are interested in the most complete, transparent investigation, the results of which will be known and explained to the entire international community. Govt. provide maximum access for journalists to Bucha and other liberated cities of Ukraine. For hundreds of journalists from around the world. And also are interested in having thousands of journalists there. As many as possible! For the world to see what Russia has done.



President is sure about the new-old tactics of Russian propagandists who are constantly trying to reject accusations of the Russian military.


Why the new old? Everything is simple. Because they used the same tactics when the occupiers shot down a Malaysian Boeing over Donbas. They blamed Ukraine. They even came up with various conspiracy theories. They even went so far as to claim that the corpses were "thrown" on board the plane before it crashed.


Now they are doing the same thing. The same lies. They are trying to distort the facts. But, as then, they will not succeed. They will not be able to deceive the whole world.


The time will come when every Russian will learn the whole truth about who of their fellow citizens were killed. Who gave orders. Who turned a blind eye to the murders. Govt. will establish all this. And make it globally known.



It is now 2022. And Ukraine has much more tools than those who prosecuted the Nazis after World War II.


Govt. must also be aware that after the revealed mass killings of civilians in the Kyiv region, the occupiers may have a different attitude to their crimes in another part of our country where they came. They are already launching a false campaign to conceal their guilt in the mass killings of civilians in Mariupol. They will do dozens of stage interviews, and re-edited recordings, and will kill people specifically to make it look like they were killed by someone else.


Probably, now the occupiers will try to hide the traces of their crimes. They did not do this in Bucha when they retreated. But in another area it is possible.


President wants to say right away: every normal person in the world understands who brought war and mass deaths to Ukrainian land. There is ample evidence that it is Russian troops who destroy peaceful cities, abduct, torture, and kill civilians.


Therefore, Russian propagandists and their leaders can now succeed in only one thing:

making their work enough for the verdict of the future tribunal, which will be similar to the verdict of Julius Streicher, one of the ideologies of Nazism, editor-in-chief of the Der Stürmer weekly. He was executed for anti-Semitic propaganda and calls for genocide.



Nowadays people are not executed already. But all skabeevas, evening loudmouths, frontline liars and their bosses in Moscow should remember: the end of your life will be behind bars. At best.


President would also like to note the reaction of the leaders of the democratic world to what they saw in Bucha. The sanctions response to Russia’s massacre of civilians must finally be powerful. But was it really necessary to wait for this to reject doubts and indecision? Did hundreds of people really have to die in agony for some European leaders to finally understand that the Russian state deserves the most severe pressure?


This breaks the heart of every Ukrainian. Because only now do people hear from all world leaders statements that should have been made long ago when everything was already completely clear.


President emphasizes once again: Ukraine must get all the necessary weapons to drive the occupiers out of the land as soon as possible, to liberate the cities. And if govt. had already got what they needed - all these planes, tanks, artillery, anti-missile and anti-ship weapons, Govt. could have saved thousands of people. President does not blame you - President blames only the Russian military. But could have helped.



President will continue to say this to the face of all those on whom the decision on weapons for Ukraine depends.


The Ukraine govt. has already started preparing all the necessary work to restore normal life in the liberated areas. Mine clearance of the territory is carried out. The sappers neutralize thousands of explosive devices every day! In the near future, govt. will restore electricity supply, restore water supply to this whole territory of our state. Govt. will provide medical care, normal access to goods - as much as possible in the current conditions.


Govt will rebuild the destroyed and damaged housing. will rebuild roads, bridges, and infrastructure. Life will come again to every city, to every community that the occupiers tried to destroy.


This week President continues to address the parliaments of the nations of the world. Today was Romania. President thanked the Romanian people for their warm attitude towards our migrants. It's true. President called for greater sanctions against Russia. Also said that Romania's leadership was indispensable for ensuring security in the Black Sea region and for restoring justice in Europe as a whole.



President will address the Spanish Parliament. And also the UN Security Council.


Today he expressed condolences to the President of the Republic of Lithuania and to the entire Lithuanian people over the brutal murder of the world-famous documentary filmmaker Mantas Kvedaravičius by the Russian occupiers in Mariupol. In 2016, he made a film about our peaceful Mariupol, which shortly before found itself on the frontline of the war in Donbas. And now it was there that his life was taken. May the memory of him live forever!


Govt. continues to prepare for even more brutal activity of the occupiers in the eastern and southern directions. Govt. know what they are going to do in Donbas. And knows what they are going to do near Kharkiv, in some other parts of the country. Russia concentrates a significant amount of military and equipment there. And this activity proves that sanctions imposed against Russia are not enough. There will be more.


If the Russian leadership does not begin to really seek peace, really negotiate peace, they will put their country in the worst condition in 50 years. The so-called wicked 90's will seem prosperous and calm.


And traditionally, before delivering this address, President signed a decree awarding the Ukrainian heroes. 152 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine received state awards, three of them posthumously.
