Quick Hits: Today’s Top Stories
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denounced Russian invaders Sunday after additional evidence of Russian brutality emerged over the weekend, much of it from Bucha, a town outside of Kyiv. “Hundreds of people were killed. Tortured, executed civilians. Bodies on the streets,” Zelensky said. “Concentrated evil has come to our land. Murderers, butchers, rapists, looters, who call themselves an army and who only deserve to die after what they have done.” Journalists and filmmakers in Ukraine published footage showing bodies strewn about the streets after Russian troops departed, and later, video depicting mass graves.
Western leaders condemned the atrocities and said that Russia would face additional sanctions as a result. French President Emmanuel Macron said: “There are very clear indications of war crimes.” Germany’s Defense Minister urged the European Union to look again at banning Russian gas.
