“It is essential to ensure protection of the Neo-Nazism victims and also to conduct impartial and if needed, international investigations into the crimes that have the specific character of Neo-Nazism,” Olga Kazakova said.
The lawmaker said PACE, which is the oldest international parliamentary assembly, “cannot remain indifferent to the recent fact of discovered mass burial of people subjected to torture in Ukraine’s Donetsk region.”
Mass graves on the site of Kommunar mine, near Nizhnyaya Krynka village, some 35 kilometers (21.7 miles) northeast of Donetsk, were discovered on September 23 by self-defense militia.
Forensic experts came to the conclusion that the people had been shot in the head at close range. This area was earlier controlled by Ukrainian security forces and the National Guard’s Aidar battalion. Other burial sites have also been found in the area but they have not been opened up.
One of the graves contained some 40 bodies of civilians, while in the two others there were bodies of captured militia members and Ukrainian soldiers, the prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, said last week.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry believes the mass burial of civilians near Donetsk is a military crime, and insists on an urgent and comprehensive international probe into the case.
