Images of bodies found in the Ukrainian town of Bucha and other areas near Kyiv in the wake of a Russian pullback, have scuppered the positive atmosphere that followed recent talks between Russia and Ukraine, Turkey said Thursday.

“The emerging positive atmosphere, unfortunately, was overshadowed.”
