German intelligence services have intercepted Russian soldiers’ radio messages discussing the murder of civilians and captured soldiers, Der Spiegel reports.

The paper says soldiers were heard talking in two separate communications of questioning individuals before shooting them.

The findings would undermine Russia’s denials that its soldiers were responsible for atrocities in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha and other locations.
