On the 157th day of the full-scale Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine Russian troops continue to try to capture the settlements of the neighboring country. The armed forces and units of the territorial defense of Ukraine resist aggression. It is impossible to verify the statements of representatives of both sides of the conflict from independent sources. According to the UN, about 14 million Ukrainians have already left their homes. DW is watching developments Saturday, July 30 (Moscow time).
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) expressed its condolences relatives and friends of Ukrainian prisoners of war in the colony in Yelenovka on the territory of the separatist region “DPR”. “Our thoughts are with all the injured and the families who are desperately trying to find out if their loved ones are alive,” the ICRC said in a statement, part of which was posted on Twitter.
The ICRC offered to help evacuate the wounded from Yelenovka and donate medicines, protective equipment and forensic materials. All prisoners of war, wherever they are held, are protected by international humanitarian law, they are no longer considered combatants and should not be attacked, the statement emphasizes.
