“The mass burials of civilians discovered on the territory of the Donetsk region in the areas where the Right Sector battalions had been stationed are the evidence of flagrant military crimes, which need to be immediately and thoroughly investigated under the international control,” the Civic Chamber said in a statement.
The Council said it is convinced that there is a need to “ensure the unbiased investigation and the inevitability of punishment for persons behind this barbaric crime against humanity.”
The Russian civil society body has urged the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to create an independent group to investigate the discovery.
“We have been deeply shocked by the reports of the burial discovered in the mine near Donetsk. This is a particularly cruel crime inspired by Nazism,” the Civic Chamber official stressed.
Militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) found a mass grave at a forest depot of Kommunar mine 60 kilometers from the regional center of Donetsk. A spokesman for the DPR militias said that several days before units of Ukraine’s National Guard had stayed in that area.
Russia’s Investigative Committee plans to launch an inquiry into the discovered mass burial of civilians near Donetsk as part of the criminal case into the war in southeastern Ukraine, official spokesman Vladimir Markin said.
