Ukraine says situation in Mariupol much worse than Bucha

Ukraine’s foreign minister said that what happened in the city of Bucha is just the "tip of the iceberg” and the situation in Mariupol is much worse, writes aa.com.tr.

“Ukraine won the battle for Kyiv, but the war goes on”, - Dmytro Kuleba​​​​​​​ said at a joint news conference in Warsaw with his British counterpart Liz Truss.

Noting that his country is preparing for a new large-scale offensive by Russia in eastern Ukraine, Kuleba said Russian forces will try to capture more territories in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and will also try to take control of the besieged city of Mariupol.

“The horrors that we’ve seen in Bucha are just the tip of the iceberg of all the crimes that have been committed by the Russian Army in the territory of Ukraine so far”, - he said.

He went on to say “without exaggeration and with great sorrow” that the current situation in Mariupol is much worse compared to what happened in Bucha and other regions near the capital Kyiv.

The horrors in Bucha, Mariupol and other regions warrant serious G7 and EU sanctions. The West continues to fill the Russian war machine with payments for Russian fossil fuels, with trade still taking place between Russia and Western countries”, - Kuleba added.
