Russia faces growing outrage amid new evidence of atrocities

BUCHA, Ukraine (AP) – Russia faced a fresh wave of condemnation yesterday after evidence emerged of what appeared to be deliberate killings of civilians in Ukraine.

Some Western leaders called for further sanctions in response to the alleged atrocities, even as Moscow continued to press its offensive in the country’s east.

Germany’s defence minister suggested the European Union  (EU) discuss a ban on Russian gas imports, but more senior officials indicated an immediate boycott was not possible – a sign that leaders could struggle in the short-term to ramp up already severe sanctions on Russia.
