DONETSK, July 7. /TASS/. The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) has urged the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to inspect the incarceration conditions of the DPR sappers captured by the Ukrainian troops in late June, DPR human rights commissioner Darya Morozova said on Thursday.
"We are very concerned about their health condition. According to my information, they were first delivered to the Mariupol airport where they were bullied. After that they were brought to the Mariupol department of Ukraine’s Security Service. I have already got in touch with the ICRC and the UN asking them to visit them," Donetsk News Agency quotes Morozova as saying.
On June 27, the Ukrainian Armed Forces opened artillery fire on the outskirts of the village of Shirokino in southern Donbass region where DPR sappers where demining the area. The work was coordinated with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Two people were killed, eight others were shell-shocked and were later captured by the Ukrainian military.
