Before the Ukrainian War, Russian President Vladimir Putin had a population of about 60,000 on February 24. Ukraine has charged Russian soldiers with crimes against civilians such as Bucha, a town near Kieu, after numerous deaths were found in civilian clothing in areas dominated by Russian troops and subsequently abandoned.

Recently, political leaders around the world have visited Irpin and other places near the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, where Russian soldiers have been accused of killing tens of thousands during the conflict.

Trudeau was accompanied by Foreign Minister Melanie Jolly and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland when he raised the Canadian flag at the Canadian Embassy in Kieu.

Ukraine has accused Russia of committing “war crimes”, including Bucha, several times since the invasion. Last month, a mass grave and a street with scattered bodies emerged from Bucha near Kieu.

The Ukrainian government said Bucharest had recovered more than 400 dead in civilian clothing. Meanwhile, more than 900 bodies have been found in the streets around Kieu. The dead were found after Russian soldiers left these places. Moscow, on the other hand, has denied these claims. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
