Reuters, 06/09/22. Two more mass burial sites containing the bodies of hundreds of people in the northeastern Ukrainian town of Izium have been discovered, Volodymyr Zelenskiy said last night. Izium was recently recaptured from the Russians.
The Urainian President was speaking during an interview with CBS published late on Sunday (25/09) in which he also
called for sustained sanctions pressure on Russia, whose troops were routed in northeastern Ukraine in a lightning counter-offensive earlier month.
Russian authorities did not immediately comment on Zelenskiy’s assertion, but regularly denies committing atrocities in Ukraine or delerately targeting civilians.
“Today I received more information,” Zelenskiy said. “They found two more mass graves, big graves with hundreds of people… We’re talking about (the) little town of Izium.The sanctions need to continue. These sanctions will have political impact, as well as financial impact.”
