The town of Bucha has become the "symbol" of massacres by Russian troops and "compromise with Russia is impossible after Bucha", Ukraine's former president Petro Poroshenko told FRANCE 24 in an interview from Kyiv.

He also called for an unconditional ceasefire before any talks, a stance currently at odds with the official Ukrainian position.
