STORY: Ukrainian forces took back control of the small towns of Bucha and Irpin to the northwest of Kyiv in late March last year as Russian invasion forces abandoned their attempts to seize the capital.

Moscow denies accusations of executions, rapes and torture by its occupying troops who left bodies in the streets when they fled.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Friday, Ukraine would never forgive Russian troops responsible for atrocities in Bucha.
