"Is morning edition from NPR news I'm a Martinez in Culver City California And I'm Rachel Martin in Washington D.C. Russian forces pulled out of some small towns just outside Kyiv and all that is left is utter devastation about 90 minutes outside the capitol in the town of bucha dozens of bodies were found on the streets Ukrainian officials are calling it a massacre saying some of the bodies showed signs of torture and execution Moscow calls the allegations a provocation by Ukraine I talked to NPR's Nathan rott who is in the capital Kyiv Sadly I think this is just the start right These images that we're seeing of bodies that appear to be badly burnt of bodies that appear to have been tied with their hands behind their back Are going to be the conversation in Ukraine for a while And so I think we explained a little of the chronology there You just did But I think it's important for people to understand what is happening is Russian forces invaded these towns north of where I am in Kyiv in the first days of the war They were stopped by Ukrainian forces and last week we started seeing them withdraw from this region altogether Russia says it's doing this as a gesture of goodwill as a sign that they're sincere about peace negotiations I think it's important to note that they continue to launch missiles at targets here Now with Russian troops withdrawn Ukrainian forces are moving into the suburbs and towns like bucha really for the first time in weeks And what they're seeing are these horrifying scenes Here's Kyiv's mayor vitali Klitschko who we talked to over the weekend I just came in right now from north to the city I am a little bit depressed What I saw the old people shoot Civilian To the end old young people women's should buy Russian soldier The bodies everywhere there What is Russia saying about this So Russia is claiming that these images were seeing are fake They say Ukraine is deliberately spreading false information This is something they continue to say through the war I've talked to people who have been in these towns over the last couple of days We're planning to go there tomorrow And you know from what I've heard it is very clear that there are dead people in civilian clothes in these places Human Rights Watch released a report yesterday detailing multiple incidents that appear to be war crimes And this sense we're getting is that more reports like this are coming as Ukrainian forces move into other towns So there are now all these calls for accountability for this from the international community What are you hearing in Ukraine The same And a lot of frustration Ukraine has been calling for more military help from the U.S. and other Western Allies since before this war started They want anti aircraft systems They want fighter jets And you know they are getting military support It sounds like the U.S. is actually helping facilitate the transfer of Soviet era tanks to Ukraine for the first time But there's still a sense and we're hearing that if these images from bucha the accounts of what's still happening right now in harkey even the north and Mario and the south were fighting his ongoing if they don't move the needle for greater western involvement the Ukrainians say it's hard to know what will I actually just finished talking to a man who is working with Ukrainian territorial defense who believes that their starts to become culpability of Western countries if greater intervention isn't taken NPR's Nathan rott in Kyiv thank you Thank you Secretary of State Antony Blinken told CNN's State of the Union that the U.S. is investigating possible war crimes by Russia We will look hard and document everything that we see put it all together make sure that the relevant institutions and organizations that are looking at this including the State Department have everything they need to assess exactly what took place in Ukraine who's responsible and what it amounts to For more on this we have called on ambassador Pierre Richard prosper He was a war crimes prosecutor for the UN international criminal tribunal for Rwanda and later served president George W. Bush in a senior role as U.S. ambassador at large for war crimes Ambassador thank you so much for joining us this morning Good morning thank you for having me Based on your experience in your estimation has Russia committed war crimes in Ukraine Well it would appear that they have based on the reports that we are seeing we're seeing effectively the unlawful killing of civilians we're seeing potential acts of torture rape all the things that are outlawed by the Geneva conventions and the laws of war Spain's prime minister has called what's happening in Ukraine right now a genocide Poland's prime minister described it that way too Is that the right term to use here Because it carries legal weight It's a very specific phrase Well it does It carries significant weight because under the genocide convention nations are obligated to act But I think right now we should not necessarily be focusing on labels because they determination is a process And it requires deeper analysis to define genocide But what we need to be doing is really focusing on the actions themselves It is clear that atrocities are being committed It is clear that based on the reports that there are violations of the laws of war And that should be sufficient for nations not just the west not just the United States but the entire international community to act Which is very complicated And as you say when you call something of genocide by the international standard legal standard at compels countries the international international community to intervene I mean do you let the process of the investigation keep going Or do you just make the determination now based on what you've seen Well I think the international community needs to take action regardless An investigation does take time to determination does take time but that should not withhold the action of the international community When you see civilians excuse me we see civilians being killed or hands tied behind their backs and executed That should be sufficient We have seen the international community take actions in other areas when civilians have been in harm's way So this should not be any different So what would that look like Well I think obviously I don't have the information that the United States government NATO and others have But I do think we need to continue to support the Ukrainian government give them the materials they need to defend themselves The United States and others should see what other actions are capable But I think what's really important is what you are doing here and what we are doing is we need to continue to shine a light on the actions of the Russian Russian government because we have to make sure that this is undeniable And the more that we can get the global community and I'm talking Europe United States Asia Africa Latin America everyone to condemn and put pressure on the Russian government hopefully it will begin to curb not only curb the action but promote an action of accountability Hopefully it will promote dissent from within where the Russian people themselves see that there is a problem But it's such a messaging war right I mean we've seen these hideous images coming out of the town of bucha outside of Kyiv and Russia's foreign minister Lavrov is already saying that this was a Ukrainian provocation How do you hold Russia accountable by standards and a process that the country is likely to.

"Coming up on 5 minute news. Ukraine refugees could be key witnesses against Russian abuses. Russian state TV boosts Kremlin lie on invasion. And emails prove Trump lawyer knew delaying Biden's certification was unlawful. It's Friday, March 11. I'm Anthony Davis. More than 2 million Ukrainian refugees have begun to scatter throughout Europe and beyond. Some carrying valuable witness evidence to build a case for potential war crimes. More and more the people who are turning up at border crossings are survivors who have fled some of the cities hardest hit by Russian forces. It was very eerie, said E hor die kov, one of the many people who crossed the urban river outside Kyiv on the slippery wooden planks of a makeshift bridge. The Russians promised to provide a humanitarian corridor which they did not comply with. They were shooting civilians, he said. That's absolutely true. I witnessed it. People were scared. Such testimonies will increasingly reach the world in the coming days, as more people flow along fragile humanitarian corridors. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky on Wednesday said three such corridors were operating from bombarded areas and in all about 35,000 people got out. People left to sue me in the northeast near the Russian border. The suburbs of Kyiv and a narrow Dar, the southern town where Russian forces took over a large nuclear plant. More evacuations were announced on Thursday as desperate residents sought to leave cities where food, water, medicines, and other essentials were running out. In a staggering measure of displacement, Kyiv mayor vitali Klitschko said on Thursday about 2 million people or every second person amongst the capital's residents have left the metro area. In addition to the growing number of refugees, at least 1 million people have been displaced with the Ukraine, the scale of the humanitarian crisis is so extreme that the worst case scenario in the international organization for migrations contingency planning has already been surpassed. Nationwide thousands of people are thought to have been killed across Ukraine, both civilians and soldiers since Russian forces invaded two weeks ago. City officials in the blockaded port city of Mario pole have said 1200 residents have been killed there, including three in the bombing of a children's hospital in Ukraine's second largest city kharkiv, the prosecutor's office has said 282 residents have been killed, including several children. The United Nations human rights office said it has recorded the killings of 516 civilians in Ukraine in the two weeks since Russia invaded, including 37 children. Most have been caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area it said. It believes the real toll is considerably higher, some of the latest refugees have seen those deaths firsthand. Their testimonies will be a critical part of efforts to hold Russia accountable. For targeting civilians and civilian structures, like hospitals and homes. Russia state TV has said that Russian troops are in Ukraine to save people there from neo Nazis and to disarm a country that was preparing to wage war on its own population. The TV reports also say that people across Russia are supporting what the Kremlin calls the special military operation in Ukraine by forming convoys in which cars display the tricolor Russian flags, or they gather in courtyards and form a large letter Z, which has become a symbol of the Russian military. A news anchor at state TV channel Russia 24 rattled off the names of cities holding the demonstrations. It took several days after the start of the February 24th invasion for Russia to gear up the campaign, depicting what it said was widespread public support of the assault. The narrative of Russian standing behind their troops sought to counter spreading anti war sentiment on the home front, with thousands protesting in the streets of Moscow, St. Petersburg and elsewhere, and over a million signing a petition to stop the attack. Political analysts say Russians are indeed rallying around the flag, but the big question is how long such support will last in the face of crippling western sanctions and worsening living conditions, or whether it will eventually translate into increased support for president Vladimir Putin. In seeking to control the narrative, the Kremlin has blocked most of Russia's independent media outlets and forced the rest to halt coverage altogether with threats of prosecution and prison for reporting that deviates from the official line, which includes calling the action a war or an invasion. Interrupting the certification of Joe Biden's election win on the 6th of January last year as part of the scheme to return Donald Trump to office, was known to be unlawful by at least one of the former president's lawyers, according to an email exchange about the potential conspiracy. The former Trump lawyer John eastman, who helped cold and ate the scheme from the Trump war room at the Willard hotel in Washington, conceded in an email to council for Mike Pence, Greg Jacob, that the plan was in violation of the electoral count act. But eastman then urged Pence to move ahead with the scheme anyway. Pressuring the former vice president's council to consider supporting the effort on the basis that it was only a minor violation of the statute that governed the certification procedure. The admission that the scheme was unlawful undercuts arguments by eastman and the Willard warham team that they believed there was no wrongdoing in seeking to have Pence delay the certification passed the 6th of January, one of the strategies they sought to return Trump to power. Its additionally raises the prospect that other members of the Willard war room, including Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani and Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon, were also aware that the scheme to delay or stop the certification was unlawful from the start. The strategy to delay the joint session past January 6th was about buying time for Trump and his team to pressure state legislatures to send Trump slates of electors to Congress on the basis that the Biden slates were illegitimate because of supposed election fraud. The admission is significant since it demonstrates eastman knew the scheme to delay Biden's certification was unlawful, which the select committee believes bolsters its case that he was involved in a conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruct justice.

"These efforts to publicize Russian soldiers whereabouts have grimly contrasted with previous reports confirmed by the British Ministry of Defense, that Russia has prepared mobile crematoriums to use in the conflict. If I was a soldier, and knew that my generals had so little faith in me that they followed me around the battlefield with a mobile crematorium, or I was the mother or father of a son, potentially deployed into a combat zone, and my government thought that the way to cover up losses was a mobile crematorium, I'd be deeply deeply worried. British defense secretary Ben Wallace told the telegraph. Western officials have similarly adopted pointed rhetoric when referring to the conflict, placing it squarely on one man's shoulders, and a call with reporters on February 26th, a U.S. administration official repeatedly referred to the conflict as Putin's war of choice. When European Commission president Ursula von der leyen announced a new round of crippling economic measures the following day, she also called it Putin's war, and president Joe Biden's address to the nation on February 24th. He also spoke directly to Russians. To the citizens of Russia, you are not our enemy, he said. And I don't believe you want a bloody destructive war against Ukraine. This tone was set by zelensky himself, who in a televised speech on the eve of the invasion spoke directly to the Russian people in their own language. They're telling you that this flame will liberate the people of Ukraine, but the Ukrainian people are free, zelensky said. Ukraine on your TV news and the real Ukraine are two totally different countries. Do Russians want war? I would like to answer that question, but the answer depends only on you. It's unclear what impact these efforts will have, there are indications that morale is sagging among Russian troops on the ground, with some surrendering without a fight, and many running out of fuel and food, a senior U.S. defense official said Tuesday. But the Russian government is still fighting to control the narrative. It has throttled access to Facebook, blocked websites set up by the Ukrainian government, and reportedly ordered media outlets not to use words like attack, invasion, and war. On Tuesday, Moscow moved further to stem the spread of what they called deliberately false information about its invasion of Ukraine, blocking in Russia an independent TV channel and a liberal radio station, and even threatening to block Wikipedia there. Despite those measures, there are signs that the invasion is growing more unpopular, especially with the Russian economy facing catastrophic consequences. And rare and often risky shows of descent, Russian anti war protesters have demonstrated across the country, according to the Russian monitoring group, info. Almost 6000 of them have been arrested. For now, with negotiations stalled and mounting casualties on both sides. It's clear that Ukrainian officials intend to keep trying to get through. Asked if he had a message for Russian soldiers on Sunday. Kyiv mayor vitali Klitschko told the camera, go back home. You have nothing to find here..
