Anatolii Fedoruk, Mayor of Bucha, reported on Telegram that he had given Stoltenberg a coin made of Russian bullets, with the symbols of Bucha engraved on it.

"The results of destruction and war crimes committed in the town produced a profound impression on the Secretary General. He assured us that NATO will continue to provide the Ukrainian army and people with unprecedented support. I believe that such decisiveness will stay unwavering and will accelerate our victory," Fedoruk wrote.

On 20 April, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg arrived in Kyiv on an unannounced visit.
