Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called on the UN to visit the colony in Olenivka to establish all the facts of the crime committed by Russian troops, and the International Committee of the Red Cross to check all Ukrainian prisoners of war.
The head of Ukrainian diplomacy wrote about this in Twitteraccording to Ukrinform.
“I call on the UN, which facilitated the evacuation of Ukrainian servicemen from Azovstal, to strongly condemn the shelling of Olenovskoye colony and visit the place to establish all the facts of this horrific crime. I also call on the ICRC to check all Ukrainian prisoners of war,” Kuleba said.
As Ukrinform reported, law enforcers opened criminal proceedings on the fact that Russia shelled Olenivka in the Donetsk region, as a result of which about 40 people were killed and 130 were injured.
According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian military deliberately fired on the colony in Olenivka, where Ukrainian prisoners of war were kept.
The General Staff called the Kremlin’s statements about the alleged shelling of civilian infrastructure and the population by the Armed Forces of Ukraine “an outright lie and a provocation.”
In the village of Olenevka near Mariupol, there are two filtration prisons of the invaders. Former law enforcement officers, pro-Ukrainian activists, “unreliable” before sentencing or undergoing filtration, volunteers who evacuated Mariupol residents are kept here.
There was also information that captured Ukrainian soldiers were brought here from Mariupol.
