Yumiko Matsuo is a Japanese TV anchor who is in the headlines after she appeared to be carried by emotion when reading the news of Putin bestowing honours on the brigade that committed atrocities in Bucha. She had just shown clips of children hiding in the bunker of the Mariupol steel mill and was overcome with emotion.
After she started to cry, Yumiko said (Translated from Japanese to English): “There are still a lot of civilians stuck in the bunker, I’m sorry, Excuse me. Ah, I’m sorry, it’s just the last news which Putin was honoring the soldier makes me, sorry, really I was so frustrated to read the news, I’m sorry I’ll keep my calm. The Ukrainian war has entered a new phase, (continue to introduce the guest)”
