Those intelligence findings – First mentioned by Der Spiegel
– He appears to have implicated Russian forces in a pattern of war crimes apparently despite Moscow’s denials, most recently in the indiscriminate killing of civilians in the Kyiv suburb of Bucha.
Der Spiegel reported that Germany’s BND foreign intelligence agency had intercepted Russian radio conversations about Killing of civilians in Bucha
and that some of the conversations could be directly linked to specific killings in Bucha that have been documented since news first emerged of an apparent massacre there.
German intelligence has satellite images that indicate the involvement of Russian forces in the murder of Bucha, The Washington Post reported
citing an unnamed intelligence official, although the newspaper said the radio broadcast had not been linked to this website.
News of the German intelligence assessment comes amid widespread international outrage over Bucha and a growing body of evidence implicating the Russian military in the indiscriminate killing of civilians in Ukraine.

Russian soldiers were shot dead on a street in Bucha. International media broadcast extensive images of the same street, where the bodies of at least 20 civilians were found after the Russian forces left the area.
The German foreign intelligence office declined to comment and a German government spokesman declined to comment on the Der Spiegel report.
The objections of German forces are not the first audio evidence of Russian forces’ involvement in the killing of civilians.
On Tuesday, Ukraine’s Security Service released a series of intercepted audio recordings that it claims reveal Russians receiving orders to kill civilians.
In one of the alleged intercepts, a soldier identified what he described as a car carrying two civilians.
“F**king killed them all, for f**k!” Reply comes.
