World News 4.04: World condemns Bucha massacre; elections in Hungary, Serbia

The United States and the EU have condemned what appears to be a deliberate massacre of civilians in the Ukrainian town of Bucha committed by the Russian troops and have voiced their support for Ukraine, calling the event a war crime. Meanwhile, certain pro-Russian sympathies have become apparent in Europe, as Viktor Orbán’s Fidesz won the general elections in Hungary and pro-Putin Aleksander Vučić and his Serbian Progressive Party won the early elections in Serbia.

Statement by Minister Kuleba
