A surviving prisoner of war spoke about the strike of the VFU on the colony in Yelenovka

The surviving prisoner of war told Izvestia correspondent Alexander Safiullin on July 29 about the strike of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (VFU) on the colony in Yelenovka.

“The arrival was strong, powerful, everything began to burn. We began to get out, if possible, got out. When I first arrived, they took me to another place, literally carried me away. And the second was right in the place where we lived. I started to get out, I felt that I had a severe pain in my stomach and, in fact, until the moment we were taken out of there, I was waiting for the moment that something would happen., he said.

The injured are said to be in serious condition, most of them in intensive care. In turn, doctors are constantly working with the wounded, who were pulled out from under the rubble.

The strike on the pre-trial detention center was inflicted on Friday night from the American multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) HIMARS. It is known that among the prisoners were Ukrainian servicemen, as well as members of the Azov formation (criminal cases have been initiated against the radical formation in the Russian Federation). As a result of the impact, 53 people died and another 75 were injured.

According to the source, the VFU attacked the colony in Yelenovka in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) to prevent other prisoners of war from confessing. The blow, according to him, was made purposefully.

It is noted that the shelling occurred after the publication of an interview with one of the militants of the unit, in which he confessed to such crimes as shooting cars with civilians, explaining that Kyiv had given such an order in order to negatively set up residents.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation called the shelling a purposeful bloody provocation by the Kyiv regime. According to the head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, her goal was to destroy the prisoners until they began to testify.

On February 24, Russia launched a special operation to protect the DPR and the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR). It was preceded by an aggravation of the situation in the region, an appeal by the leadership of the Donbass republics to the Russian Federation with a request for help, and the subsequent recognition by Russia of the independence of the DPR and LPR.

Kyiv has been conducting a military operation against the residents of Donbass, who refused to recognize the results of the coup d’état in Ukraine, since 2014.
