MOSCOW, December 27. /TASS/. The Donetsk People’s Republic sent addresses to the OSCE and the International Committee of the Red Cross to inspect facts of the abuse of prisoners in Ukraine, the Donetsk republic’s plenipotentiary envoy at the talks in Minsk said on Saturday.
“We see how washed out people look. Many of them have signs of tortures,” Denis Pushilin said commenting on the prisoner swap of December 26.
“We addressed the OSCE and the Red Cross to conduct a medical examination of people released from captivity,” he said.
“At the moment, according to our lists, 800 people are held captive in the territory of Ukraine. People are held in battalions’ units and in pre-trial detention centres. The work will be done with every person from the list,” Pushilin said.
The prisoner exchange between Kiev and the Donetsk republic was held in the town of Yasinovataya, north of Donetsk, on December 26.
