More than 1,000 Ukrainian POWs held in Russia — human rights activist



2015/01/04 • News

Volunteers have irrefutable evidence that more than a thousand Ukrainian POWs are currently in hospitals, clinics, and prisons in Russian cities, including Eisk, Taganrog, Volgograd, Kursk, St. Petersburg, and Moscow, said Elena Vasileva, Russian human rights activist and founder of the Cargo 200 project (Cargo 200 is the code word for casualties for transportation in the Russian military — Ed.). She reported her findings with supporting data on her blog, reports Espreso TV, January 3.

“Here we have very limited reports, which really were prepared by Police Major M. Yu. Lobasov, the head of Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs department in Rostov-on-Don,” she stated, adding that the major had not been involved in the transfer of the documents; it “simply happened.”

“If Russia has not invaded Ukraine and is not conducting a war with the former brother nation, then on what basis are Ukrainian POWs arriving in Russia? According to our data, there are already more than a thousand of them,” she wrote.

      But only those held by the goons in the Donbas. These are soldiers illegally detained by Russia.

    Deeper sanctions and allow military weaponry to find it’s way into Ukraine and then deny everything like the subhuman muscovites do.

    I know that when to deal with russia, logic is almost impossible, but is that not little too many ? Why 1000 and not 999, why 15/01/04 and not 25/12 . Just before a new meeting.
    Is Ukraine army so secretive that nothing has ooze out ?
    That they are certainly wounded guys in Russia is possible, it serves their ” humanitarian” purposes . What about OSCE ? Reports ?

    Madame Vasileva should be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts to get Russia’s war against Ukraine stopped. She is an example to the citizens of Russia how to interact with the rest of the World. She has done much more than U.S. organizations like Human Rights Watch. She has been active in trying to stop this war, and not just preoccupied with pointing the finger at the victim and accusing them of provoking its aggressor.
