Horrifying satellite images show bodies lying in streets after Russian massacre

Horrific satellites images taken from the skies above Ukraine have laid bare the vicious war crimes of Vladimir Putin's Russian troops.

The new images show bodies piled up in the streets in the town of Bucha while it was still under Russian control.

The shocking pictures verify that corpses were lying in the open for weeks before Bucha, on the outskirts of Kyiv, was liberated despite the Kremlin's lies to the contrary.

Since the conflict began in February, Russian forces have been accused of a litany of war crimes including murder, torture and rape, with troops carrying out acts of "unspeakable, deliberate cruelty and violence".

Russian officials had tried to claim that Ukraine had killed the innocent people in an act of "provocation" after troops withdrew – but the satellite images expose their callous lies reports the Mirror.

The news comes after a sickening “torture room” was found in Bucha.

Graphic images of dead bodies discarded among rubble have been shared by the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office who claim the photos were taken in a chilling building in Bucha.

The Office alleges the corpses belonged to citizens who had been tortured and killed by Russian soldiers when Moscow had a fleeting grip on the city.

Ukrainian officials say 410 civilians have been killed in the towns surrounding Kyiv so far with 300 partially buried or not buried at all in Bucha alone.

Meanwhile, private surveillance company Maxar Technologies also uncovered a 45ft trench where a mass grave was found in satellite images.

Maxar spokesman Stephen Wood said in a statement: "High-resolution Maxar satellite imagery collected over Bucha, Ukraine (northwest of Kyiv) verifies and corroborates recent social media videos and photos that reveal bodies lying in the streets and left out in the open for weeks."

The company previously said the first signs of excavation for a mass grave at the Church of St. Andrew and Pyervozvannoho All Saints were seen on March 10.

In a press conference, Russian envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia falsely tried to pass the blame for the murders on Ukraine.

She claimed the heartbreaking scenes were "arranged by the Ukrainian information, information warfare machine".

Speaking from Bucha, Mr Zelensky vowed that Putin and his troops would be punished for the alleged war crimes.

He said: "It's very difficult to talk. It's very difficult to negotiate when you see what they did here.

"Every day we find people in barrels, cellars and everywhere else, some strangled, some clearly tortured."

He continued to reporters: "These are war crimes and will be recognised by the world as genocide. You are here today and can see what happened.

"We know of thousands of people killed and tortured, with severed limbs, raped women, murdered children. I think it is more than … this is a genocide."
