On March 30, the Russian army, as part of the regrouping, leaves Bucha, the regional center in the Kiev region. This was announced by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in its official information resources. On March 31, smiling happily, Anatoly Fedoruk, the mayor of the city, reports about this.
On April 1, a deputy of the Bucha City Council, Katerina Ukraintseva, warned the townspeople and urged them not to leave their homes: SBU officers arrived in Bucha to carry out a “cleansing operation”. The city is occupied by “Azov”.
A video appears with a call to shoot at anyone who does not have blue ribbons on their hands. White ribbons were tied by civilians. And on April 2, the Ukrainian national police valiantly publishes a video of the “cleansing” of the streets – even fences, buildings without obvious damage, passers-by cautiously passing by. It doesn’t even smell like carnage.
And only on April 3, first Ukrainian, and then Western media simultaneously explode with terrible pictures that the army of the Armed Forces of Ukraine supposedly saw when they entered the city. The corpses of civilians are evenly laid out along the road. From March 30 to April 2, no one noticed them? Neither the mayor of the city, although he recorded a video on March 31 near the city administration, nor the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who filmed their passage along the same street, only without corpses.
