“Bucha’s ashes burn in our hearts” – EURACTIV.com
After the massacre of the Ukrainian population in Bucha, Irpin, Vorzel, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol, the EU should completely disconnect Russia from SWIFT, close all its ports to Russian ships, freeze and seize all Russian assets and accuse Putin of war criminal, writes Roman Rukomeda.
The 39th day of war is coming to an end. Ukraine and the whole world are horrified by the scenes of the destroyed cities around kyiv and the crimes of the Russian beasts. It is impossible to believe that such crimes can be committed in the heart of Europe against a peaceful civilian population.
The picture emerging from the small towns of Bucha, Irpin and Vorzel surrounding kyiv on its western and northern borders is horrifying. There are graves with over 200 peaceful civilians with their hands tied and bullets in their heads. There are naked, burned bodies of Ukrainian women who have been raped, sometimes in the presence of family members and children.
Some of these bodies were crushed by Russian tanks. In this way, the Russian beasts tried to hide the signs of their crimes. Almost all children and men are killed in these towns. Many bodies are mined.
Russian military hordes also mined and destroyed local cemeteries. Hundreds of dead civilians lie in the streets. This massacre and this nightmare could previously only be seen in the worst horror films. Now it’s made in Ukraine by Russians.
Apart from that, before retreating from Kyiv and Chernihiv regions, the Russian invaders robbed and looted hundreds of houses. They loaded their tanks and armored vehicles with the looted goods of the local population. They boasted of looting intercepted phone calls to their wives and parents.
Some of them managed to reach the territory of Belarus, where they began to sell these goods to locals who knew the nature of these things. It is also a feature of Belarusians who now support the Russian genocide against Ukraine. This is also one of the proofs for the future international tribunal on Russia, where Belarus will be examined as the direct assistant to all Russian crimes.
The ashes of Bucha, Irpin, Gostomil, Mariupol and other destroyed Ukrainian cities burn in our hearts. Russia is not only the terrorist state that threatens the lives of all Europeans, but it is the fascist beast of the 21st century that must be stopped immediately, otherwise it will destroy the civilization of our world.
All those European politicians from France, Germany, Hungary and some other European countries who are discussing the need for a new relationship with Russia will decide for themselves.
Either they become assistants to the mass murderers and crimes against humanity committed by Putin and his armed horde, or they must immediately cease all contact with the main fascist and terrorist of the 21st century – Putin.
After the genocide of the Ukrainian population in Bucha, Irpin, Vorzel, Chernihiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol, the EU and NATO, which received proof and proof of the massive massacres of the Ukrainian civilian population, should completely disconnect Russia of SWIFT, close all their ports to Russian ships, freeze and arrest all Russian assets, and charge Putin with a war criminal and crimes against humanity.
Military and financial aid to Ukraine should be seriously increased so that it ends the war in the fastest way – the Ukrainian armed forces pushing back the Russians to their borders. The new international tribunal on Russia and its crimes in Ukraine is now a matter of European dignity and justice.
After all these crimes committed in Ukraine by Russian aggressors, the picture is black on white. There is no more room for maneuvers. European societies that still believe in the values of democracy and human rights must demand that their politicians completely isolate Russia and sever all ties with these terrible Kremlin war criminals and their armed forces.
There are no more gray shadows. Either Ukraine and Europe will arrest the worst anti-human Russian criminals in 21st century history, or all European life, security and well-being will be destroyed. If Ukraine falls, the next victims of Russian beasts will be NATO and EU members in Eastern Europe. It is time to destroy Russian fascism, so that it never rises again.
