Ukrainian service members walk down a street littered with burned out Russian military vehicles and and debris caused by heavy fighting in the town of Bucha, Ukraine, on Wednesday, April 6, 2022. Bucha was declared liberated of Russian forces on March 31 by the town’s mayor, Anatoly Fedoruk. In the wake of Russia’s occupation of the town though, hundreds of bodies of mostly civilians have been found bound and killed, while cars carrying civilians who appeared to be attempting to flee were riddled with bullets in various locations around the area, pointing to allegations of war crimes carried out by retreating Russian forces. © Nicole Tung for Harper's Magazine
