Written by on April 6, 2022

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will on Tuesday address the UN Security Council and predict further worse instances of mass killings of civilians by Russian troops would be discovered.

The Security Council Session will consider Ukraine’s allegation of the murder of civilians by Russian soldiers in Bucha, northwest of Kyiv, following the discovery of hundreds of bodies, some bound and shot at close range.

Russia has categorically denied the accusations, calling them “criminal provocations” and says it will present “empirical evidence” to the Security Council that its forces were not involved in atrocities.

The Ukrainian leader has however already spoken by video link to more than a dozen assemblies including the U.S. Congress, the British Parliament and the European Parliament.

Ukrainian authorities said they had restored control over all of Kyiv region and other districts after Russia announced it shifted its aims away from Kyiv and Chernihiv in the north to secure control over all the eastern Donbas region.
