Russia refuted, Monday, September 19, its involvement in the discovery of hundreds of bodies and a mass grave in Izium, in eastern Ukraine. “It’s a lie. We will of course defend the truth in this case”, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. According to the Ukrainian authorities, more than 440 graves and a mass grave were found in mid-September in a forest on the edge of Izium, a town taken over by Ukrainian forces from the Russian army.

Since the beginning of its military intervention, Moscow has repeatedly denied having committed abuses in Ukraine. “It’s the same scenario as in Boutcha”, said Dmitry Peskov on Monday. Russian forces have been accused of killing dozens of civilians in this locality near kyiv, which Moscow denies.

The Kremlin spokesman also assured Monday that the Crimean peninsula, annexed in 2014 by Moscow, was “integral part of the territory of Russia”after Ukrainian officials repeated that they wanted to put an end to the“occupation” Russian. “Any aiming at Russian territory will receive an appropriate response”added Dmitry Peskov.
