RUSSIA was accused of genocide and being "worse than ISIS" after horrifying pictures showed mass graves and executed civilians lying in the street.
At least 20 bodies, some with their hands bound, were seen strewn across a single street in the town of Bucha, near Kyiv, on Sunday.
Ukrainian officials say 410 people have been found dead in towns near Kyiv so far.
At least 300 were killed in Bucha alone, and 57 were discovered in one mass grave there.
Among those said to have been killed was a14-year-old boy.
There have also been claims of rapes and the Kremlin’s soldiers “mutilating children”.
Bucha's mayor Anatoly Fedoruk said "all these people were shot," adding 280 other bodies had been buried in mass graves elsewhere in the town.
Boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko posted a Twitter video from Bucha that he said showed civilians "shot in the head with their hands tied behind their back".
He said: "This is not a special military operation. This is genocide."
The Russian commander in charge in Bucha was named in reports today as Lt Col Azatbek Omurbekov.
