Russian President Vladimir Putin accuses Ukrainian authorities of being behind “crude and cynical provocations” in the city of Bucha in conversation with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, the Kremlin says.

“Vladimir Putin informed [Orban] about the situation regarding talks between Russian and Ukrainian representatives and also gave [his] principled assessment of the Kyiv regime’s crude and cynical provocation in the city of Bucha,” the Kremlin says, after Ukrainian officials said hundreds of civilians were found dead when Russian troops withdrew from the town.
