MOSCOW, May 15. /TASS/. A member of Russia’s Civic Chamber Maksim Grigoryev said on Friday he has evidence that Kiev forces have carried out extrajudicial killings of captured militias.
At a press conference hosted by TASS, the human rights activist unveiled a video on a mobile phone believed to show a solider of Ukraine’s army throwing a grenade on the alleged Donetsk militias taken hostage by Kiev.
Grigoryev said he received this phone during his recent trip to Donbas and it is said to belong to one of the soldiers of Ukraine’s army taking part in the military operation in Ukraine’s south-east.
"This is called extrajudicial killing in an international language of law," Grigoryev stressed.
In his turn, Deputy Chairman of Russia’s State Duma, the lower house of parliament, Sergey Zheleznyak, has called for the investigation into the crimes committed by the Ukrainian military near the southern port city of Mariupol.
"I once again ask to investigate those awful circumstances linked to detention, tortures and killings of people near Mariupol," he told the press conference. "Dozens of citizens of Mariupol and other regions of the south-east are buried there following murders and tortures," Zheleznyak said.
"A concentration camp is located there housing people who are not loyal to the Kiev authorities," the MP said.
