As of early March, the law enforcers discovered the bodies of 1,373 civilians killed during the Russian occupation of Kyiv Oblast.

Russian troops invaded Kyiv Oblast from Belarusian territory on the first day of the full-scale invasion, 24 February 2023. Failing to capture Kyiv and facing fierce opposition by Ukrainian forces, Russians retreated from three northern oblasts of Ukraine – Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Sumy – after a month of battles claiming to make a “goodwill gesture.” As Ukraine reclaimed the liberated territory, a number of Russian war crimes were exposed, including summary executions, torture, and rape.
