The extent, to which the Ukrainian authorities were "preoccupied" with the "Bucha massacre" could be seen from a photograph that was published in The New York Post on April 19. The photo depicted the delivery of dead bodies to a local morgue.
The newspaper, which, of course, cannot but condemn the events in the Ukrainian town of Bucha, published a photograph by Anastasia Vlasova/Getty Images with the caption "Funeral service workers bring bodies to a morgue in Bucha on April 18, 2022, as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues."
However, according to the information from the Ukrainian side, the people, whose bodies were found in Bucha were "killed by the Russian troops” no later than March 30, when the Russian troops left the town. BBC and Sky News were the first to report the discovery of the bodies on April 1.
France Press did the same on April 2.
On April 3, journalists from world's leading news agencies were already there on the scene to spread the news about the "Russian atrocities" (Wikipedia, which has not been banned in Russia yet, provided a report on the subject in Russian language, with the help of Ukrainian editors.)
The story then evolves into something that clearly manifests the true attitude of the Ukrainian authorities in general and Vladimir Zelensky in particular to the dead bodies of the people that had been "found" after the Russian troops pulled back from the Ukrainian town in the Kiev region.
On April 9 (a week and a half after the alleged murder of the civilians in Bucha), Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer paid a visit to Ukraine. The chancellor went to Bucha to see the real picture with his own eyes. The dead bodies were still there.
Nehammer, as a highly civilized European person, was walking among the corpses in terror. For some reason, he did not even ask Zelensky why he was not going to bury them.
The Ukrainians did not even intend to bury them, because the corpses in the streets of Bucha became a tourist attraction for foreigners, another profitable business. The bodies of the dead were decomposing and rotting, but they were keeping the bodies there to display them to foreign tourists.
Finally, on April 18, almost three weeks after they ended up in Bucha, they started to move the bodies to the morgue, which was evidenced by Anastasia Vlasova/Getty Images photos.
Let's hope they finally rest in peace.
There are three questions following the publication of the photo on April 18:
Unfortunately, no one will answer these questions for us. Censor-monitoed Western media will never ask them either. I would like to hope that the questions may give at least a vague answer to whether the events in Bucha were a tragedy or just a performance that Zelenskyand his British masters staged for the world.
Incidents of confrontation between Ukrainian and Polish units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have become more frequent during the recent weeks
