DONETSK, August 24,/ITAR-TASS/. In scenes reminiscent of the famous July 1944 march-past of more than 56,000 Nazi prisoners of war down the streets of Moscow, several hundred captive Ukrainian Army Servicemen were convoyed in a column down the streets of Donetsk Sunday, eyewitnesses said in personal accounts from spot.
Several thousand local residents standing on the sidewalks booed at the former military. Water sprinkling vehicles moved behind the column, flushing dirt from the city streets in much the same way as it was done in July 1944 in Moscow after the passage of the German column.
Earlier on the same day, authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic organized a display of destroyed Ukrainian army vehicles. City residents could see salvo system, howitzers, as well as infantry and airborne combat vehicles that had been on the tables of equipment of the Armed Forces units reporting to Kiev and that had been put out of operation in the course of fighting with East-Ukrainian self-defense forces.
