This is reported by the British newspaper "Guardian" which cites as a source the regional deputy chief prosecutor, Oleh Tkalenko and said: "We have just started to work in larger cities such as Borodianka, Hostomel, Irpin and Bucha", hinting that more crimes could be discovered in other areas in the coming days, weeks or months. At the moment, several mass graves have been discovered in places that had come under Russian control.
Meanwhile, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Karim Khan, who is visiting Ukraine to take evidence and testimony, commented: "Ukraine is a crime scene. We are here because we have reasonable grounds to believe that crimes are being committed within the jurisdiction of the court".
