On Friday, a UN human rights report is expected to address the issue of mass burial sites near Donetsk. This will be observers' regular report on the human rights situation in Ukraine.
On September 23, reports came that Ukrainian people’s militia found mass burials in the area of mine No 22 “Kommunar” outside Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. Medical examiners made a conclusion that the bodies found in one of the graves were killed by point-blank shots in the head.
Prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said in late September that around 40 bodies of civilians were found in one of the graves. Two others graves contained bodies of captured militia fighters and Ukrainian soldiers.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry believes the mass burial of civilians near Donetsk is a military crime that could have been committed by Ukraine’s National Guard, and insists on an urgent and comprehensive international probe into the case. Kiev has rejected the claims.
