Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said mass graves with 900 bodies had been found in different places in Kyiv Oblast.

The Kyiv Independent earlier quoted the president as saying a mass grave with 900 people was found in Kyiv Oblast. But it issued a correction and said that Zelensky had been referring to the total number of people found in different mass graves in the province.

“Hundreds of civilians have been killed in the region by Russian troops,” the media outlet reported.


On Friday, The Kyiv Independent reported that three Russian missiles hit Kyiv Oblast.

The missiles hit undisclosed infrastructure sites near the city of Fastiv, according to Oleksandr Pavlyuk, head of the Kyiv Oblast Military Administration.
