Commento dell’Alto Commissario delle Nazioni Unite per i Diritti Umani Michelle Bachelet sui corpi nella città di Bucha in Ucraina

Le immagini dei corpi senza vita per le strade di Bucha stanno facendo il giro del mondo. Gli ultimi rapporti sulla situazione nella città suscitano domande sui possibili crimini di guerra commessi dall’inizio del conflitto in Ucraina. A tal proposito, l’Alto Commissario delle Nazioni Unite per i Diritti Umani Michelle Bachelet ha offerto il suo punto di vista sulla vicenda.


“I am horrified by the images of civilians lying dead on the streets and in improvised graves in the town of Bucha in Ukraine.

Reports emerging from this and other areas raise serious and disturbing questions about possible war crimes as well as grave breaches of international humanitarian law and serious violations of international human rights law.

It is essential that all bodies are exhumed and identified so that victims’ families can be informed, and the exact causes of death established. All measures should be taken to preserve evidence.

It is vital that all efforts are made to ensure there are independent and effective investigations into what happened in Bucha to ensure truth, justice and accountability, as well as reparations and remedy for victims and their families.”
