Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has accused Russian forces of war crimes in Kherson. He said investigators uncovered more than four hundred war crimes after Russian forces left Kherson.

He said that bodies of civilians and soldiers were found there. BBC news.

The BBC could not verify the news. Russia denies targeting civilians.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian authorities have issued a curfew in Kherson. Travel within and outside the city has been restricted.

In his video address, Zelensky said, the Russian army left the same atrocities in the Kherson region as in other regions of our country, where they managed to enter.

‘We will find every murderer and bring them to justice. No doubt.’ Zelensky added.

Mass graves have been found in areas including Bucha, Izium and Mariupol since the start of the war. Ukraine blamed Russian troops for the atrocities.

A UN commission said last month that war crimes had been committed in Ukraine and that Russian forces were responsible for the “vast majority” of human rights abuses that began the offensive.

Kherson was the only regional capital held by Russia since the invasion of Ukraine in February.

President Vladimir Putin declared the region part of Russia in a ceremony at the Kremlin in September.

But on Friday, Ukrainian troops liberated the city of Kherson. Ukrainian flag-waving crowds greeted Kiev’s troops with hugs and kisses.

After the retreat of about 30,000 Russian occupation troops, officials returned to the administration of Kherson.

Ukrainians see it as a major national victory and an insult to the Kremlin.

There are fears that some Russian soldiers may remain behind in disguise.

Ukrainian forces are working to restore internet and television connections.
