About 40 Ukrainian prisoners have been killed and 130 injured in Russia’s shelling of Olenivka, Donetsk Region. Ukrainian law enforcement officers opened a criminal proceeding.

The relevant statement was made by the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office has launched a pre-trial investigation into the violation of laws and customs of war (Part 2 Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine),” the report states.

According to the investigative data, on July 29, 2022, the aggressor state struck the area of Correctional Facility No. 120 in the temporarily occupied village of Olenivka, Volnovakha District, Donetsk Region. As a result, about 40 people were killed and 130 injured.

In this facility, Russian invaders unlawfully keep civilians and Ukrainian prisoners of war. The pre-trial investigation is underway.

A reminder that, according to the data from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Russian troops deliberately launched an artillery strike on a correctional facility in Olenivka, where Ukrainian prisoners of war were kept. The General Staff stressed that the Kremlin’s claims about the Armed Forces of Ukraine allegedly opening fire on civilians and civilian infrastructure are a blatant lie and provocation.

In Donetsk Region’s Olenivka, near Mariupol, two filtration prisons were established by Russian invaders. Here, they keep former law enforcement officers, pro-Ukrainian activists, the ‘unfaithful’ until they are sentenced or undergo filtration procedures, and volunteers who evacuated Mariupol residents. It was also reported that the Ukrainian servicemen taken captive in Mariupol had been brought there.

    • Kremtrolls “BobbyRobot” and “True Local” have commented on this atrocity. I have “corrected” their comments. I don’t think they will be back.

  1. Before the Soviets, Russia had something of a civilization. What had been built to that point was destroyed by Lenin and Stalin. Russia has not recovered from soviet times, and is unlikely to do so. All that is left is to decolonize most of the empire and break it apart.

    Alas, there must be hundreds and thousands of repercussions for all the crimes that this shithole country has committed.
