The Reaction of the World to the Livelihoods in Bucha

On April 3, a wave of horror flew around the world from what the “army” of Russia had done in the Kyiv region

World leaders not only spoke out about the atrocities and abuses committed by the occupiers but also announced measures of preliminary and future punishment. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky was the first to comment on the crimes against humanity and the genocide in Bucha:

“I invite Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Sarkozy to visit Bucha and see what the policy of concessions to Russia has led to in 14 years. To see with your own eyes the tortured Ukrainians and Ukrainian women. I want to be understood correctly. We do not blame the west. We do not blame anyone but the specific Russian military who did this against our people. Except for those who gave them orders. But we have the right to talk about indecision,” Zelenskyy.

The president of Ukraine also said that a meeting of the UN Security Council will be held on April 5. Events in the Kyiv region will be the subject of this convening. By the way, the UN has not yet made a statement about the horrors that the Russians did in Bucha.

“We have always said that we will continue to put pressure on president Putin, on the Kremlin, on everyone around him, including the oligarchs and minions who are intensifying this war of choice against Ukraine, until the Kremlin stops escalating, until the violence subsides and until such atrocities stop, so I suspect you will see additional pressure very soon. As for the images from Bucha, we have already assessed that Russian troops have committed war crimes. We collect information. Firstly, to shed light on what exactly they are doing, and secondly, to ensure that all those who committed these atrocities and all those who ordered these atrocities are held accountable. This is our mission," state department spokesman Ned Price said on MSNBC on April 3.

"Russia's dastardly attacks on civilians in Irpen and Bucha are further evidence that Putin and his army are committing war crimes in Ukraine. No amount of Kremlin denial or disinformation can hide what we all know is the truth: Putin is in desperation, his invasion is failing, and Ukraine's resolve has never been stronger," Boris Johnson.

“I will do anything to starve out Putin's war machine,” Johnson tweeted.

US Embassy Kyiv: "The images coming out of Bucha and other areas abandoned by Putin's forces are horrific. The US government is committed to pursuing accountability using every tool available. We can not stand quiet, the world needs to know what happened, and we all must act."

“Stunned by reports of unspeakable horrors in the areas from which Russia is withdrawing… The perpetrators of war crimes will be held accountable,” European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen tweeted.

Mateusz Morawiecki, prime minister of Poland, demands an urgent meeting of the EU summit in view of the crime of Putin and his terrorists in Ukraine. "It is our political and moral obligation. Stop the false gestures and avoidance tactics. Enough!" Morawiecki.

Former war crimes prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Carla Del Ponte, is convinced that an international warrant for Putin's arrest is urgently needed. According to Del Ponte, Putin is committing apparent war crimes in Ukraine and will definitely be held accountable for this.

Maia Sandu, president of Moldova, declared April 4 in her state a day of mourning for the people martyred in Ukraine.
