The Security Service of Ukraine began the process of identifying locations of concentration camps and mass graves created by terrorists in the Donbas stated Markiyan Lubkivsky, the advisor to the head of the Security Service, at a briefing on Friday, as reported by “Interfax-Ukraine.”
“We have started a very long and complicated process of identifying locations of concentration camps and mass graves in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts,” – he said.
Lubkivsky said that these are graves of killed Ukrainian military and civilians.
According to him, Ukrainian secret services actually started to compile a “Map of Death” showing crimes against humanity conducted by the militants.
He said that this is only the beginning of work and the map is yet incomplete.
To this end, the Security Service uses data from other agencies, information from various sources, including the locals, as well as satellite images.
According to Lubkivsky, counterintelligence data indicate that terrorists have introduced inhumane governance in the occupied territory.
“From the first days, terrorists such as Girkin, Bezler and their minions introduced illegal practices of totalitarian regimes. They replaced the judicial and law enforcement authorities by retaliatory ones and created a system of so-called “troikas” which imprisoned people without charge or trial, tortured them in basement cellars, handed down sentences and executed the prisoners by shooting” – he stressed.
Lubkivsky drew a parallel with the events of twenty years ago in mass concentration camps in Srebrenica (Bosnia and Herzegovina), where violent and inhumane treatment was also performed.
The Security Service of Ukraine hopes to investigate every incident together with the OSCE and UN agencies, punish those responsible for crimes and condemn them by the world community.
As soon as new territory or town will be freed from terrorists, close relatives will be asked to provide blood samples to identify each body found in mass graves.
“There will be brought to justice so-called “commandants” and “guards” of the concentration camps, as well as members of the so-called “shooting execution group,” which following in the steps of the Nazis and Russian NKVD police adopt noms de gerre such as “Abwehr,” “Muller,” “Hans,” “Psycho,” “Beria,” “Smersh” and so on”- emphasized Lubkivsky.
