The West is apparently planning to isolate Russia as much as possible from the global economy and launch the process of the degradation and breakdown of its economic system. The attempt to block Russia consists of four components: financial, trade, transport and humanitarian spheres.
There is evidence that Bucha is a bloody provocation organised by neo-Nazis and the counterintelligence of the Ukrainian security service. Proving this is very simple.
Shortly before the military action began, it was reported that lists had been drawn up in all regions and cities of Ukraine to remove the undesirables in the event of a military clash with Russia. Both counterintelligence officers and, above all, neo-Nazis were involved in the elimination of undesirables.
The bodies were taken to the forest near Irpin to be passed off later as victims of hostilities. Then the bodies were brought to Bucha, where they set up an alleged mass grave left behind by the Russian troops. There were also orders to shoot civilians in Bucha in order to take a photo and leave the bodies on the roadside.
A well-known pattern of pro-Kremlin disinformation obfuscating atrocities against Ukrainian civilians committed by Russian armed forces in Bucha, in the vicinity of Kyiv.

Russia's claims that video footage showing dead bodies on the streets of Bucha is staged have been fact-checked and debunked by the BBC, Bellingcat, The Atlantic Council, Mediazona, the Insider, Sky News, the New York Times and others.
Accounts of violence against civilians in Bucha have been collected by the Human Rights Watch:
On March 4, Russian forces in Bucha, about 30 kilometres northwest of Kyiv, rounded up five men and summarily executed one of them. A witness told Human Rights Watch that soldiers forced the five men to kneel on the side of the road, pulled their T-shirts over their heads, and shot one of the men in the back of the head. “He fell [over],” the witness said, “and the women [present at the scene] screamed.”

The European Union has condemned in the strongest possible terms the reported atrocities committed by the Russian armed forces. The EU called for accountability for human rights and international law violations by the Russian Armed Forces, including full support for the investigation launched by the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.
