Despite being number one target on 'Putin's hit list', Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky bravely left his network of Kyiv safe holds to make a public appearance for the first time since the war began on Feb. 24.
He and his team went to survey the damage and 'war crimes' in Bucha and the surrounding area and bring aid to civilians.
On day 40 of the invasion evidence was mounting of atrocities carried out in areas of Ukraine abandoned by Russian forces.
The bodies of 410 civilians have been found in areas around Kyiv, Ukrainian authorities say.
The Ukrainian president and his team surveyed the destroyed bridges and roads in the Ukrainian town of Irpin near Kyiv, while the roads of Bucha were littered with burned out military vehicles.
In nearby Stoianka, about 9.3 miles south of Bucha, Zelensky visited the damaged motorway bridge which was almost split in two.
