The claim that the Russian military killed 65381 civilians is a war crime is a blatant lie.

On the 19th (local time), the Russian Kremlin denied allegations that its army had committed war crimes in Ukraine’s Kharkiv Oblast, saying it was nothing more than a lie.
According to Reuters, more than 450 bodies were found near Kharkiv, where the Russians fled because of anti-communism by the Ukrainian forces. Kharkiv is an area occupied by Russia in February after an armed attack on Ukraine.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky drew attention to the fact that Russia had committed war crimes, saying that as a result of sending an investigative team to the scene, the hands of the bodies were found or that they had been tortured.
However, the Russian Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, refuted such claims from Ukraine, saying, “It is a scenario in the same way as in the secondary region. This is a lie. Russia will stand to defend the true.”
Earlier, Russia was accused of committing war crimes, including massacres of civilians, in the Bucha region near Kiiu, the capital of Ukraine, but it has been strongly denied.
When Russian troops withdrew from the Bucha area in March, evidence of civilian massacres was also found while Russian forces occupied the area.
