A report released by the UN High Commissionaire for Human Rights indicates a number of civilians have been executed without proper trial by insurgents, which is twice as much as in the past 3 months.
The UN High Commissionaire for Human Rights has been recording cases of torture, murder, maltreatment and sexual violence in the occupied areas of Donbass. Cases of extortion and forced labor have also been recorded.
The UN also reports 2 mass executions committed outside the town of Peremozhne in the Lugansk region. “Eight gunmen, wearing uniforms without any identification markings, forced their way into a house where Ukrainian volunteers were staying on August 10, 2014. The house was ransacked and its occupants, a man and a woman, kidnapped. In the next 10 days, the gunmen went back three times, threatening a kidnapped volunteer’s father with guns. The relatives of the kidnapped had no information on their plight until their bodies had been found outside the village of Pyatigorovka next January. Tests performed on the bodies in June 2015 confirmed their identities. The UN cited gunshot wounds to the head as an official cause of death.
Four more people were executed for presumably helping the Ukrainian Army in the same village on August 22, 2015. The report also provides information on other tortured and killed civilians and soldiers.
According to the report, illegal detentions, threats and tortures have been practiced by both the terrorists and Ukrainian military.
The UN also cites an increasing number of casualties among civilians: a total of 105 people were killed and 308 wounded from May 16 to August 15; a total of 60 people were killed and 102 wounded from February 16 to May 15.
