OTTAWA — Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez has asked arts bodies that get federal funding to suspend all cultural activities involving Russians linked to Vladimir Putin's regime in protest of his invasion of Ukraine. Canadian Heritage has written to organizations receiving the department's funding, asking them to cancel tours and co-productions bankrolled by Russian or Belarusian state organizations. The demand, issued last month, could lead to cancellation of exhibitions of art loaned from Russian galleries, as well as concerts, festivals, and theatre and ballet productions featuring Russian artists.

But this video has not been shot in the area where these bodies have been discovered, and other evidence makes it possible to affirm that corpses join some streets of Bantha while the Russian army still occupied the city.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other world leaders condemned Russia on Sunday for its recent attack on the Ukrainian town of Bucha, where reportedly 300 civilians were killed.
The detail that retains the attention of pro-Russian accounts is that no civilian corpse is visible in the video, which lasts more than seven minutes. (Only one corpse appears at the twenty-fourth second of the video, but it is a soldier in uniform). However, since these police officers patrol in Bantcha, it would be proof that the civilian victims discovered on April 3 were not yet in the streets the day before. And so that they would have been killed after the departure of the Russian army. But this demonstration is false.
We have traced the route borrowed by these policemen. For this, we have identified several visual indices such as remarkable panels, color buildings, or stores of shops and pharmacies. Then we geolocalized them with the Google Street View tool.
This route borrowed on April 2 by the Ukrainian police starts to the east of Bantcha. Their convoy enters the city by road E373 which then becomes Shevchenka Street on which they inspect several abandoned vehicles. After reaching a large shopping center, they turn around and leave to Shevchenka and Vokzalna Streets.
