MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. A burial site of unidentified people has been found near the settlement of Amvrosiyevka in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Lilia Rodionova, a member of the DPR commission for the affairs of prisoners, said on Monday.

She said commission members had resumed on Monday the search for bodies of servicemen killed near this settlement. "Today, we began an operation to recover bodies of servicemen killed near Amvrosiyevka. A burial site has been found," the Donetsk News Agency quoted as saying.

She said the bodies had been exhumed for forensic studies. "So far, we cannot say how many bodies were buried there and the identity of these people," she said.

DPR militias have already found a number of other deserted burial sites. Some of them were visited by leaders of a number of European non-government organizations. DPR militias also applied to the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) asking to initiate an emergency investigation over these deserted burial sites near Donetsk.
