Bucha killings are not far from genocide, says Boris Johnson – POLITICO

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called that scenes of dead Ukrainians being tied up and left on the streets of Bucha “do not fall far short of genocide”.

“If you look at what’s happening in Bucha, the revelations that we’re seeing of what [Russian President Vladimir] Putin did in Ukraine, which doesn’t look far like genocide to me, it’s no wonder people are reacting the way they do,” he told reporters on a visit to a hospital on Wednesday.

“I have no doubt that the international community – Britain at the forefront – will move forward again in lockstep to impose further sanctions and penalties on Vladimir Putin’s regime.”

Authorities said last week after Russian troops partially withdrew from Bucha, a town just dozens of kilometers northwest of central Kyiv discovered Streets lined with civilians who appeared to have been tied up and shot at point blank range, as well as mass graves of local residents.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez also indicated that Monday’s events in Bucha will be considered genocide. saying he “would do everything to ensure that those who committed these war crimes do not go unpunished and appear before the International Criminal Court for “war crimes and, why not put it that way, genocide”.

Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was even more energetic. fight Monday that “this is genocide and must be judged as such”.

Russia has denied that its troops were responsible for the scenes involving Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov saying Tuesday that the scenes were a “provocation” by Ukraine to disrupt ongoing negotiations. “In the past few days, the propaganda machines of the West and Ukraine have worked exclusively to inflate hysteria,” he said.
