There, he discussed the crimes committed by Russians against the civilian population in February-March 2022. Delegates also viewed photos depicting the effects of the occupation.

"It's hard to look at all the horrors that happened here without tears. We sympathize with all people living in Bucha who have experienced such events. But the fact that you tell the whole world about it is very important now"
said Sophie Lede.

The guests also paid tribute to the memory of the victims of Russian aggression by laying flowers at the monument in Bucha.
