Kiev’s junta forces attacked and shelled a detention center holding Ukrainian POW’s early Friday morning to threaten their own troops who may want to surrender to Russia. At least 53 people died in a strike on a detention center in Donbass.
A large number of Ukrainian servicemen have been voluntarily laying down their arms, and know about the humane treatment of prisoners by the Russian side.
Authorities in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said that the death toll in the missile strike has grown to 53, while 75 were wounded.
DPR Deputy Information Minister Daniil Bezsonov posted a graphic video on his Telegram channel, which shows multiple mutilated and charred bodies inside the destroyed building.
The ministry said the facility held members of Ukraine’s Azov Battalion, whose fighters surrendered to Russian and Donbass forces during the siege of the Azovstal steel mill in Mariupol.
The battalion is notorious because it includes fighters with nationalist and neo-Nazi views.
Speaking to Russia’s TV Channel One, DPR head Denis Pushilin claimed that the Ukrainians deliberately targeted the detention center in order to kill Azov members who had been providing testimonies about possible war crimes by their commanders.
The Ukrainian military released a statement, accusing Russian troops of shelling Yelenovka. Moscow destroyed the prison in order to pin the blame on Kiev, as well as to hide the torture of prisoners and executions, something Kiev knows very well how this works lately.
