“The ‘military police’ of ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’ (‘DPR’) told the SMM that three unmarked graves allegedly containing multiple bodies had been found; two of them were located in a coal mine Komunar near the village Nyzhnia Krynka (35km north-east of Donetsk) and one inside the village,” the OSCE said in its report.
“The SMM proceeded to the scene and saw in the coal mine two areas located fifty meters apart, each containing two human bodies. All the four corpses were in the process of decomposition. The SMM also saw eight 9mm Makarov pistol cartridges approximately five meters away from the bodies. Near the road on the edge of the village, the SMM observed a pile of earth resembling a grave which had a stick with a plaque, written in Russian and containing the names (or in one case - initials) of five individuals, the OSCE said, adding the SMM had not seen any forensic experts neither in the coal mine nor in the village.
An inscription against one of the names indicates that the person had died on August 27, 2014.
“Also in Nyzhnia Krynka, the SMM observed a destroyed bridge over the water reservoir, connecting the locality with Donetsk. According to local residents, the bridge was blown up by Ukrainian soldiers leaving the area around 18 September,” the OSCE monitors wrote in their report.
