The President of Ukraine said that Russia‘s attitude is no different from terrorists. He said that the world is yet to know the full truth about Ukraine. Zelensky said mass graves had been found thereafter the city of Bucha was freed from the occupation of Russian forces. Dead bodies of people have been found.
