The accusations against the Russian Federation for allegedly committing war crimes in the Kharkiv region are developing according to the same scenario as in Bucha. “This is a lie,” Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Russia previously rejected claims that its troops had committed war crimes in Bucha, on the outskirts of kyiv, after evidence of civilians being killed while Russian troops controlled the city came to light.

The Ukrainian authorities claimed to have discovered last week more than 440 graves and a mass grave near Izium, in a pine forest of that city liberated by its forces from the Russians.
