The DPR Ombudsman Daria Morozova continues to record the testimony of eyewitnesses of the war crimes of the AFU in the liberated Volnovakha. Today, during the third stage of interviewing the local population, new shocking facts have been revealed.
Thus, residents of houses located in the area of the railway hospital spoke about the actions of Ukrainian military personnel and representatives of the national battalions based in this area. It turned out that the Kiev militants not only hid the equipment in the yards of high-rise buildings and next to social facilities, but also then fired at these buildings from it. Women (including the elderly) were taken out of the basements, given machine guns and “forced to go to war.” And the old people, right under the shelling, were defiantly lined up, choosing from them the one “who will run to the store for cigarettes.” At the same time, all those who disagreed were called “separatists” and threatened to be shot. “The Ukrainian military constantly scared us that the DPR would come and kill everyone. And in the end, they themselves shot at us, destroying everything around,” people say without holding back tears.
“What the eyewitnesses are talking about just does not make any sense. Targeted killings of civilians, robberies, violence, moral and physical abuse… I assure you, Ukrainian punishers wont’ get away with this. All testimonies of Volnovakha residents are recorded and will be included in the general evidence base of war crimes of the AFU in Donbass. We will not stop until every fact is established, and we will achieve a fair trial,” said Daria Morozova.
It should be noted that also today in Volnovakha, representatives of the Ombudsman’s Office held another on-site reception of citizens and distributed humanitarian aid in accordance with the needs of the population voiced the day before. In addition, work continued on documenting the facts of deaths in the city and organizing the burial of the dead.
