Responding to accusations that Russia is committing war crimes, Ivan Tchorland remarked, 'It wasn't us. The Ukrainians blew up their own mall in Kremenchuk.'
When further challenged with footage of a missile striking the building, he declared, 'Russia doesn't bomb civilian targets. The strike was meant for a military target nearby.'
When shown proof that there are no military installations anywhere near the town, Tchorland said, 'it was some big boys what done it, but they ran away.' He then burst into tears crying, 'I want my mam.'
