Ukraine has marked the 80th anniversary of the Babi Yar massacre, one of the most infamous mass slaughters of the Holocaust.

Nearly 34,000 Jews were killed within two days in 1941 at the wooded Babi Yar ravine in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

The massacre was carried out by SS troops and local collaborators when the city was under Nazi occupation during World War II.
