Suggested Analyses – A few days ago, the media were actively discussing the question – who arranged the mass murders in Bucha? At that time, most of the media were inclined toward the actions of the Russian military. However, some facts now cast doubt on the earlier conclusions.

The crux of the matter is that the Russian military was blamed for the massacre back in mid-March, but most civilians were killed after the troops withdrew from Bucha.

At that time, Maxar Technologies provided images that were proof of the massacre. Maxar Technologies has several satellites (models WorldView-1 32060, WorldView-2 35946, WorldView-3 40115, GeoEye-1 33331). Three satellites were moving in all. The satellites started moving on March 19, but none of them had a trajectory over Bucha (watch the video below). Hence we can conclude that there was no information on Bucha from these satellites.

Everyone well remembers that there were satellite images after all. The question arises – when were they taken? The New York Times published images of dead people. The images show the aftermath of the downpour (the downpour took place from March 31 to April 1). You can also look at the position of the shadows (compared to March 19 and February 28).

The shadows and time match, only the picture for March 19 was not taken on March 19 but was taken on April 1. Also, using the SunCalc program, the specialists compared the angles of the Sun’s declination over the horizon, which also matched. The study was conducted by a team of OSINT and GEOINT specialists. The specialists concluded that the image was not taken on March 19, but on April 1 at 11:57 GMT.

If we turn to The New York Times article, we can notice that the first photos of Bucha were taken between March 9 and 11. At that time, the territory was under the control of the AFU. It also states that the Russians took the city on March 11. However, according to the Institute of War report, the Russians did not control the south of the city from March 9 to 11.

Attention should also be drawn to the statement of the General Staff of Ukraine on Facebook on March 10, which reads «the enemy is trying to break through the defenses of Ukraine’s defenders in the areas of Poliske, Kukhari, Zhovtneve, Andriyivka, Kopyliv, Motyzhyn, Buzova, Horenychi, Bucha, Demydiv, and block Kyiv.

Next, the Institute of War, in its Facebook post of March 11, states that all attempts by the Russian army to take Bucha have failed.

Putting together the first and second parts of the puzzle, a picture emerges where the Russian troops did not commit the acts attributed to them. The question of trusting one side or the other remains open and a personal matter for everyone.

  1. What struck me at once when i first saw the earliest releases from Botha was the regularity with which the assumed corpses were placed: Very orderly at regular distances from each other, mostly. So it reeked of an arranged and pre-planned happening. Just tale a look at the second areal photograph in thia article — the one with the letters “MAXAR” in the lower right hand corner- The second and third day, these prostrate lying male figures had been re-arranged in a more helter-scelter fasion. Obviously the street strewn with apparent corpses was very pre-arranged.
    Also: If these presumed dead were locals: Where are their wailing famoly members and relatives turning up to gather and give them a decent burial. ??
    By the way: At least two of the interviewed locals speak with uvular (back-of the-founge) proninciation of the letter “R”. In all of the previous Soviet Union republics, no-one used the uvular “R” except ancient court nobility families in Leningrad/Saint Perersburg/Petreograd, but almost all Jews from Yiddish-speaking families so did. (THis is the reason modern Israëli Hebrew also use the uvular pronunsiation — just like most modern Germans and Frenchmen do. This indicates that Bocha is maybe one of the few remaining places where a rural or semi-rural Jewish group may have remained in The Ukraïne: Maybe a reason for the Azow battalion veterans to engage in a distractionary pogromafter the Russian troops had left?

    • Yes, the burr R (uvular) is peculiar to Germans and French as well as Jews. Phonetics. The Russian letter and sound R are phonetically very hard and rough. These are the features of the language and phonetics. But there are exceptions. They are innate. I also have a uvular R. When our family was on military service in Germany, my parents even wanted to take me to a speech therapist. The fact is that we Slavs, even children tease those who have a uvular R sound, because for Russians such pronunciation is unusual and funny. Of course, it is associated with the French and Jews. Now this defect is easily eliminated by dissecting the palate in the mouth. But when I speak English, this defect is not heard.
