Join us for our fourth 'Dispatches' episode on war crimes broadcasting live from the Club.
Over the weekend, Ukrainian soldiers discovered atrocities in the town of Bucha on the outskirts of Kyiv after they took back control of the territory. Almost 300 mutilated bodies including children as young as 14 were found burnt, lying on the streets with their hands tied behind their backs and buried in mass graves. This is proof of apparent war crimes in Russian controlled areas.
All ticket revenues will be redirected to our 'Straight from the Frontline' campaign supporting freelance journalists in Ukraine.
