Atrocities raise pressure on US to hold Putin accountable

Dead bodies lining the streets. Hundreds of people buried in mass graves. Women reporting brutal sexual violence and rape.


These are among the atrocities Ukrainian officials say Russian troops are committing in the country, increasing pressure on the United States and its allies to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin accountable.


“These are war crimes and will be recognized by the world as genocide,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Monday while surveying the carnage in the city of Bucha, outside Kyiv.
