The new report by International Partnership for Human Rights (IPHR), Truth Hounds, and Global Diligence LLP sets out evidence of war crimes committed by the Russian armed forces in three localities on the western outskirts of Kyiv between 27 February and early April 2022 — Motyzhyn, Kopyliv and Severynivka. This cluster of three villages is located off the M06 Kyiv-Zhytomyr highway, approximately 45 kilometers from Kyiv city center. The area was occupied by Russian armed forces on 27 February 2022, as part of Russia’s failed effort to encircle and capture the Ukrainian capital. The area remained under occupation until Russian armed forces abandoned the assault on Kyiv and withdrew from the north of Ukraine in April 2022.
