Drone footage shows destruction of war-torn Irpin, Ukraine

DRONE footage shot on Friday (April 29) shows the scale of destruction left behind by Russian forces which withdrew in late March.

The town, which had a pre-war population of about 62,000, was one of the main hotspots of fighting between Ukrainian and Russian forces before they pulled back from Ukraine’s northern regions to intensify their offensive in the east.

Police said investigators have examined 269 bodies left behind in Irpin. Russia denies targeting civilians and has dismissed allegations its troops committed war crimes in occupied areas of Ukraine.
