MOSCOW, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Leaders of some European non-governmental organizations have visited the recently discovered burial places near eastern Ukraine's Donetsk.

They said they examined burial places at the Kommunar coalmine and others on September 28. They also saw photographs taken at the sites directly when buried bodies were discovered.

The group of representatives of non-governmental organizations and international experts said in a statement that after visiting the site on September 28, meeting with executive power officials and law-enforcement authorities of the Donetsk People’s Republic and questioning local residents and relatives of victims at the sites, they strongly condemned the facts of brutal massacre and gross violations of the international humanitarian law.

Human rights activists appealed to the UN Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, European Council Commissioner for Human Rights Nils Muiznieks, OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier, international human rights organizations and media in various countries to initiate an urgent investigation into the discovered facts of burial of bodies near the city of Donetsk. An international commission must immediately conduct an impartial and objective investigation, the human rights activists said.

Everything must be done to bring those guilty to justice in accordance with the international law, they said in the statement.
