Ukraine news LIVE: Evil Vladimir Putin’s forces ‘clearly’ guilty of ‘war crimes’ after mass grave discovery in Kharkiv

CANADIAN prime minister Justin Trudeau has bluntly accused Russia of “clearly” committing “war crimes” in Ukraine.

Mr Trudeau’s comments come just days after around 450 graves were found near Izyum in Kharkiv, following Ukraine’s decisive counteroffensive in the region.

Those found are believed to be victims of Vladimir Putin’s bloodthirsty invasion of Ukraine.

According to Reuters, speaking prior to attending Her Majesty’s State Funeral, Trudeau said: “Obviously the UK and Canada have been two of the strongest countries in standing up in support of Ukraine and pushing back against Russia’s illegal actions.”

He added that Putin’s tactics in the Ukraine war “increasingly, clearly include war crimes, include absolutely unacceptable crimes, whether we think of what we found in Bucha or the discovery of mass graves in the reclaimed territories by Ukraine.”

    Russian civilians are questioning Putin’s actions in Ukraine, as Zelensky’s troops get closer and closer to the Russian border.

    “We are on the border; they are shooting at us, so we need an army and protection. Who will wake up the President?”

    One terrified woman told the New York Times: “It is as if they are already here.”

    These fears arise as Ukraine continues its decisive counteroffensive in the Kharkiv region.
