More harrowing images out of Ukraine, in Kyiv, are shocking the world.
Russian soldiers acting on the orders of bloody dictator Vladimir Putin to invade the country have committed appalling war crimes and acts of genocide.
A new mass grave containing the bodies of at least 57 civilians, and possibly up to 300, butchered by the Russians has been found near a church in Motyzhyn.
This came after a mass grave of 280 corpses had been exposed in Bucha, alongside dozens of bodies left decomposing in the street by Russians recently forced to withdraw from areas northeast of Kyiv.
Entire Families Tortured and Murdered
Among the shocking sights in Bucha is also a torture chamber.
Some of the most haunting images show several corpses on their knees lined up against a wall, with hands tied behind their backs, executed with gunshots to the back of the head.
A total of 57 Ukrainian civilians’ bodies killed in cold blood have been unearthed from the mass grave in Motyzhyn in the Bucha municipality. The shallow mass grave has been discovered in the yard of the local church.
The corpses clearly show signs of torture; apparently entire families have been buried there, according to a report by The Daily Mail.
Among those who have been identified is the family of the village mayor, Olga Sukhenko, who was killed approximately 10 days ago by the Russians, together with her husband and their 27-year-old son.
The Russian brutes broke all of her fingers and both of her hands before murdering her, her colleague revealed.
A resident of Motyzhyn is quoted as saying the Russians murdered any Ukrainian official who refused to carry out their orders.

We continue to find out the horrors Russian troops left in Bucha. USA, give Ukraine a chance to stop Russian aggression. Military support we need the most: heavy artillery (152mm; 155mm), armored vehicles, tanks, military trucks, long-range anti-aircraft systems. pic.twitter.com/fopCzNp3Z9

Putin Crossed Threshold of Barbarity
The horrifying photos and videos out of Bucha and neighboring towns and villages show civilian corpses in mass graves, in basements, and just left rotting in the streets.
Civilian survivors from Bucha recount how Russian tanks would just run over dead bodies in the street “squashing them like animal skin rugs.” In other cases, the Russians shot elderly people dead right in front of their relatives.
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba described the Russian genocide atrocities in Bucha’s area as a “deliberate massacre” and the Russians themselves as “worse than ISIS.”
Apart from that, there have been sickening accounts of Russians putting young Ukrainian children on tanks to be used as “human shields” or sending entire buses full of children ahead of their retreating tank columns.
The Ukrainian forces are presently in the process of liberating the region of Chernihiv, northeast of Kyiv.
A spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced, “we will not rest” until Putin and his men are served justice, as the Russian dictator has “crossed the threshold of barbarism.”
I found @BBCWorld last night shockingly underpowered as if they felt we had to be protected from the Russian atrocities in #Bucha. The truth is shocking but hiding it lets Putin and the war criminals get away with it. pic.twitter.com/wAuJKgYyJT
