MOSCOW, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. 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 on Wednesday.

“The reports of killings of people, whose bodies were found in a mass burial near Donetsk, are to be verified by the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee in the framework of the investigation of the criminal case into the use of banned means and methods of warfare against civilians in southeastern Ukraine,” Markin said.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the mass burial of civilians in eastern Ukraine a military crime that could have been committed by Ukraine’s security forces.

Russia's ruling United Russia party has called to establish an international commission to investigate mass burials found near Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.
