President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday lashed out at Russia as officials began exhuming bodies from a mass burial site discovered when Kyiv’s forces recaptured the east Ukrainian town of Izyum.

“Russia leaves only death and suffering. Murderers. Torturers,” Zelensky said in a statement on social media, adding that more than 400 bodies discovered in forests near Izyum included children and people who likely had been tortured.
