Mass burials of Ukrainians in the Donetsk region – what is known
In October 2022, the police of the Donetsk region announced the completion of the exhumation at the site of the mass burial of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Lyman. The bodies of 34 Ukrainian defenders were removed from the mass grave, and their bodies were sent to the morgue.
After the identification and establishment of the causes of death, the bodies of the deceased were handed over to their relatives for burial. Then there was another burial nearby with civilians.
And yet the fearless moral leadership at the UN just can’t seem to find any evidence of genocide………….
