According to him, 50 people were burned alive, the rest crawled out as best they could.
Ukrainian neurosurgeon Dmitry Kubryak told the shocking details of the tragic events in the colony of Yelenovka with prisoners of war, which he witnessed.
“Personally, I understand what kind of explosion it was and who carried it out. The events were so consistent that it is not necessary to talk about some kind of accident,” the doctor said in an interview with UNIAN .
According to him, that night the staff of the colony calmly moved throughout the territory without bulletproof vests, helmets, that is, not at all fearing for their lives, although the shelling did not stop.
Kubrak shared how, after the explosion, he heard loud, terrible screams:
“I have never heard such sounds – neither before nor after … The heartbreaking cries of agonizing people were carried throughout the colony … It is beyond words! The explosion occurred somewhere at 23:30, and only 30-40 minutes later we, “Ukrainian doctors were attracted to help. We ran to the scene of the tragedy – what we saw was shocking. Fifty people died immediately – burned alive. The rest, as best they could, crawled out of the barracks outside … A huge number of wounded! They writhed in pain and shouted: “Help!” And in this chaos, in the darkness, we had to decide: who to help first of all, who not to help, who can wait … “.
The first KAMAZ with the wounded left Yelenovka only at five in the morning, that is, after almost six hours, the neurosurgeon noted: “People were just lying on the ground … People who received deep extensive burns, shrapnel wounds, traumatic amputations of limbs, injuries to internal organs … We ran between them, desperately trying to save, and the workers of the colony just stood near the fence, ignoring our pleas to send the victims to the hospital. They stood with smiles, releasing cynical remarks … A kind of passive contemplation of other people’s torment … “.
Dmitry Kubryak suggested that the administration of the colony was simply waiting to see who would survive and who would not.
“During this time, five people died, eighty were taken to Donetsk, to the hospital. About thirty more were slightly injured – they were left in Yelenovka, about the same number were almost not injured. I really hope to never see such a nightmare again,” Dmitry added.
