The prosecutor general of Ukraine said her office is opening new cases of alleged war crimes by Russian forces, with a total of 9,158 criminal cases "involving purely war crimes."
"We have already identified specific war criminals," said Iryna Venedictova. "There are 15 people in the Kyiv region for instance, 10 of them in Bucha. We are holding them accountable for torture, rape, and looting."
Ukrainian prosecutors named ten Russian soldiers last week as suspected of a variety of crimes in Bucha.
On the identification of victims in Bucha, Venedictova said that some bodies cannot be identified and DNA samples are collected.
"Unfortunately, we have grounds to open new cases every day: the death of civilians, bombing, deportation of our citizens and children to the occupied territories and to the territory of the aggressor state, etc," she said.
She said the cases covered the regions of Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy.
Venedictova added that Ukraine was receiving international assistance in its investigations.
"Now we have a team of French experts, and experts from Slovakia. We are waiting for the experts from Lithuania next Tuesday," she said.
