Police exhume more ‘mass dumping sites’ of executed victims in Sloviansk



A number of journalists, including VICE News’ Simon Ostrovsky, who has done some of the best reporting on the crisis in eastern Ukraine to date, posted photos today of an exhumation being conducted by police. Police informed Ostrovsky that the dig site he witnessed was used as a ‘mass dumping site’ for victims executed by men under Russian terrorist Igor Girkin’s command. At the mass grave, skeletal remains of those from the Russian-Ukrainian civil war also turned up during the dig for bodies.

Recall that previous mass graves were discovered in the city, notably containing priest’s and their families, and documents have shown Girkin to have carried out summary executions on residents of the city.

Update from CNN:

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using the chanсe - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you.)  If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation

    Wherever russians go, they seem to leave piles of bodies, or if they can get enough labor, get them to dig their own mass graves…..

    It seems to be very popular in Russia. Or maybe they’ll just say it’s American propaganda and they’ll only believe their own propaganda.
