In interview to Channel 5 TV, the Chairman of the Ukrainian Security Service Valentin Nalyvaychenko disclosed that, on the orders of Russia’s General Staff, bodies of Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine are burned in mobile crematoria.
According to him, between 20 and 23 January on the orders of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, seven mobile crematoria arrived into the territory of Ukraine temporarily-controlled by the Russian-terrorist forces. The crematoria are mounted on the chassis of KAMAZ trucks.
Nalyvaychenko noted that each of these crematoria burns 8-10 bodies per day [that would mean Russia expects its regular army losses not to exceed 56-70 KIA per day, the total capacity for all 7 crematoria – Transl.] [quote style=”boxed” float=”left”]Nalyvaychenko noted that each of these crematoria burns 8-10 bodies per day [that would mean Russia expects its regular army losses not to exceed 56-70 KIA per day, the total capacity for all 7 crematoria – Transl.][/quote]
According to the information, the work of these “death furnaces” is coordinated directly by Russian military intelligence. At the end of 2014, these “special” KAMAZ trucks were reported being in the Rostov oblast of Russia near the border with Ukraine.
Nalyvaychenko said that the hotline established by the Ukrainian Security Service daily receives dozens of calls from Russian citizens searching for their relatives serving in Russian military and sent to Ukraine.
He noted that the Ukrainian government will behave humanely and will return mothers of Russian soldiers the bodies of their sons together with personal effects.
Nalyvaychenko reminded that a few days ago the Security Service publicly expressed its readiness to transfer the body of a Russian citizen Andrey Emelyanov to the Russian side.
However, the Security Service press center later added that the Russian Federation consulate has yet to respond to this offer.
