Russia committed an act of genocide of Ukrainians near Kyiv


Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that the crimes committed by Russia in Bucha and other suburbs of Kyiv should be called acts of genocide and investigated as such. On Sunday, April 3, he wrote on Facebook.

Morawiecki called the atrocities of the Russians against almost 300 residents of Bucha and other suburbs of Kyiv a genocide and stated that all those responsible – directly or indirectly – should be severely punished by an international tribunal.

“The massacre in Bucha is more than a wake-up call for Europe and the whole world. This is a heartbreaking cry for justice, for freedom, for the right to life,” wrote the Polish prime minister.

Morawiecki said that the European Union should confiscate all Russian assets in its banks, as well as the assets of Russian oligarchs, and immediately cut off all trade relations with Russia.

“European money must stop getting into the Kremlin,” the Polish prime minister urged.

He also said that “Putin’s criminal and increasingly totalitarian regime” deserves only one thing – sanctions that really work.

Morawiecki believes that Ukraine should receive more weapons with which it can protect the women and children of Mariupol, Bucha and other cities.

“This is our political and moral duty. No more maneuvers and fake gestures. Enough!” – the prime minister added and demanded that the President of the European Commission and the head of the European Council urgently convene the EU Council to discuss the crimes of the Russian Federation and effective sanctions.

The European Union promises to help Ukraine investigate war crimes committed by the Russian army in the north of the Kiev region.

The mayor of Bucha, Anatoly Fedoruk, said that 280 people were buried in mass graves in the city.
