Prime Minister of Japan Kishida Fumio, during his visit to Ukraine, visited Bucha - a city that became a symbol of the brutality of the Russian occupiers.

Reuters writes about it.

Kishida was accompanied by First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Japarova and Japanese Ambassador to Ukraine Matsuda Kuninori.

The Japanese Prime Minister laid flowers near the church where civilians killed by the Russians were buried.

"This cruelty is shocking to me. Allow me to express my condolences on behalf of my nation to those who died," the prime minister said.

In Kyiv, Kishida will hold talks with President Volodymyr Zelenskyi regarding Japan's support for the reconstruction of Ukraine, and then he will go to Poland.
