A mass grave containing several dozen bodies apparently belonging to Ukrainian civilians was discovered Saturday in Buzova, a village west of the capital Kiev, local authorities said, quoted Sunday by the German news agency DPA.
A mass grave was found near a gas station, while other bodies were found in carcasses on the main road between Kiev and Zhitomir in the west, the village's mayor, Taras Didych, told Ukrainian television.
Russian troops recently withdrew from the vicinity of Kiev, after spending the first few weeks of the war unsuccessfully trying to take the capital.
Russia is being singled out after the discovery of the massacre of dozens of civilians in Butcha after its army withdrew. At least 50 people were also killed in a missile strike on Friday on the railway station of Kramatorsk, in the Donbass, where civilians were rushing to flee eastern Ukraine, targeted by Russian forces. Moscow also denies any responsibility.
