"Ukraine has discovered two more mass burial sites containing the bodies of hundreds of people in the northeastern town of Izium, which Kyiv recaptured from Russia this month," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said, APA reports citing CBS.

Zelenskyy made his comment in an interview with CBS published late on Sunday in which he also called for sustained sanctions pressure on Russia, whose troops were routed in northeastern Ukraine in a lightning counteroffensive this month.

"Today I received more information... They found two more mass graves, big graves with hundreds of people... We're talking about (the) little town of Izium," Zelenskyy said.

"The sanctions need to continue. These sanctions will have political impact, as well as financial impact."
