1,346 bodies of civilians have already been found in Kyiv Oblast, part of which was under the occupation of the Russian invasion forces. However, even this figure is not yet final, said the head of the Main Directorate of the National Police in the region, Andriy Nebytov, according to TSN.
According to him, most of the people were killed with firearms. Nebytov says that specialists work every day at the positions where Russian troops were based, and find more and more buried corpses.
He also reported that currently approximately 300 people are considered missing in Kyiv Oblast.
Liberation of Kyiv Oblast
The Ministry of Defense reported on April 2 that the entire Kyiv Oblast had been liberated from the occupiers. In particular, on March 28, the Ukrainian military took full control of Irpin, and on March 31, Bucha and the entire local community.
Evidence of mass killings of civilians is still being found in the liberated territories: since April, journalists and government officials have been publishing videos and photos of the dead, whose bodies were just lying on the streets.
As of May 4, law enforcement officers in Kyiv Oblast have already found and identified the identities of 1,235 victims, as reported by the regional police chief. 282 bodies have not been identified yet.
