A large number of graves have been found in the territories liberated from the Kiev occupants, the human rights commissioner in the Donetsk People’s Republic and head of the interdepartmental commission for searching for missing people Darya Morozova said on April 12, the Donetsk News Agency (DAN) reported.
Morozova said that spontaneous graves of civilians “are now found practically in all large liberated towns and villages, in particular, in Volnovakha and Mariupol.” According to her, “we have many such graves with victims of the actions of Ukrainian armed units.”
Morozova explained that the exhumation of burial sites has been postponed. Now, she said, the priority of the republican authorities is to collect the bodies of the dead that are on the surface and to bury them.
She said that in the coming spring and summer period, with the higher temperatures, the bodies will decompose more intensely. Therefore, she said, “we have to collect all the bodies that are on the surface. We need to document every such case.”link
