In the latest condemnation of reports of Russian soldiers killing civilians in Bucha, Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Monday that a “significant number” of employees at the Russian Embassy have been declared “undesirable” and will be expelled from the country.

“The images from #Butscha testify to a will to annihilate that transcends all borders,” a translation of Baerbock’s German tweet reads. “We have therefore declared a significant number of employees of the Russian embassy to be undesirable. We will initiate further reactions together with our partners.

“We will further tighten the existing [sanctions] against [Russia], decisively increase our support to the Ukrainian armed forces, and also strengthen the eastern flank of the #NATO.”

Reports of the attacks in Bucha have drawn international criticism, as U.S. President Joe Biden said Monday morning that he believes even more now that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a war criminal who should be tried for the actions of the Russian military.

This is a developing story that will be updated as more information becomes available.
