Ukrainian Alex Dayrabekov escaped Bucha when the war began, but
has remained in touch with people there.

He has been documenting what is
happening in the town on social media, in hopes that it can be used as evidence in later
criminal trials.

“My neighbours – and there are at least 10 of them – lost their closest relatives in their attempt to evacuate from Bucha and Irpin around a month ago,” he says in an interview with the BBC.

When asked why he tweets images from Bucha, he replied: “The entire world has to see them. If the world doesn’t know what is happening here, the world does business as usual. Thousands of people died here… because they were deliberately killed.”

In one account, he describes a harrowing encounter between Ukrainian civilians and Russian forces.

“Two cars in Bucha were shot at by an armoured vehicle with machine guns. In one car, an entire family, a man, a woman and two kids. The woman and both kids were shot (at) and died on the spot. In another car, a husband was killed on the spot.

“These are real people, this is not fake.

“The entire world has to see these pictures and know this is not a war, this is a massacre against our nation, just like Hitler did in World War Two. Putin does this to us, against Ukrainians.”
