“One of the cases involved the death of a mother of three who spent a month in the basement; she had very little food and water, before that she was not sick. So, possibly, she died of hunger.

Every case of death should be investigated as a crime of Russia against Ukraine,” Spirin writes.

The first established suspect in the murders in Bucha is the commander of the Russian National Guard unit Sergey Kolotsey.
