Ukrainian mother who had to bury her own son

The UN Secretary General called for an independent investigation into the deaths of civilians in Ukraine after Russia was accused of war crimes.

When Ukrainian forces re-entered areas near the capital Kyiv after the Russian retreat, they reported finding hundreds of bodies and mass graves in the city of Bucha.

It was here and in the vicinity that the BBC filmed the bodies of civilians being shot in the streets, some with their hands and feet tied. Russia calls photos of killings of civilians “fake”.

BBC correspondent Jeremy Bowen met a grieving mother on the outskirts of Kyiv, who had to bury her own son, who was killed by Russian soldiers.
