Kolonna said this at a meeting of the UN Security Council in connection with the situation in Ukraine.
“As soon as it became known about the crimes committed in Buch in April, we sent two groups of investigators to Ukraine. For three months, they helped Ukrainian justice patiently and carefully restore the facts, and we donated a mobile laboratory for DNA analysis. Now that the world has become aware of new crimes in Izyum, we have decided to send another mission to support investigators on the ground, because where Russia operates, using propaganda and disinformation, justice must be based on facts and evidence,” the head of French diplomacy emphasized.
The city of Izyum in the Kharkiv region was liberated from Russian occupation at the beginning of September during a counteroffensive by Ukrainian forces. A mass burial of more than 450 bodies was discovered in it. Western leaders reacted sharply to this.
