In the Kyiv
suburb of Bucha, where evidence suggests Russian troops executed innocent
civilians, fresh atrocities are still being uncovered.

Iryna Abramov
told the BBC how Russian troops stormed the home she shared with her husband
Oleg, set it on fire, and took Oleg out onto
the pavement outside.

Iryna’s father
Volodymyr, who lived next door, raced to put out the fire, crying out for his
son-in-law to help. But the reply came from the Russian soldiers, Volodymyr said.

“Oleg will not
help you anymore.”

Oleg Abramov, a
40-year-old welder who lived a quiet life in Bucha, was apparently shot at
point blank range outside his home, just moments after the Russian troops
arrived.

“My husband wasn’t a soldier. He had never
held a gun. He was a peaceful man,” Iryna said.

“They took him
from our house in his slippers, asked him to take his shirt off, asked him
to kneel on the ground, and killed him.”

When she ran out and found his disfigured body, the four Russian soldiers who dragged him out were standing casually drinking water, she said.

She screamed at them to shoot her, and one raised his gun, then lowered it, then raised it again, and lowered it, until Volodymyr dragged her back inside.
