Law enforcement officers identified seven more Russian servicemen involved in committing war crimes during the occupation of Bucha, Kyiv region. The offenders were served a notice of suspicion of violating the laws and customs of war.

This was reported by the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine. The suspects face long prison terms.

The investigation established that the suspects shot four civilians in March 2022. The commander, along with a sergeant major and a senior sapper, found pro-Ukrainian information on a local's cell phone.

"The suspects beat the man with their hands and feet, as well as with the butt of a weapon, and then the commander ordered him to be killed. The sapper tied the victim's hands and shot him. Another suspect, a platoon commander of the 3rd Parachute Regiment of the 1st Battalion, shot him after checking the phone of a local, firing at least seven times," the press service said.

The investigation also identified those involved in the shooting of two people in Bucha at the occupiers' checkpoints. A private with other soldiers stopped a civilian car and then fired a shot through the driver's door window. He pulled the civilian out of the car and laid him on the road. Subsequently, the private and the deputy commander of the combat vehicle shot the man, firing simultaneously.
