Joint statement regarding the mass murder of Ukrainian prisoners of war in #Olenivka
@ServiceSsu, @DI_Ukraine, the Armed Forces of🇺🇦and the Commissioner for Human Rights issued a joint statement regarding the mass murder of 🇺🇦 prisoners of war in the Olenivka colony.
On the night of July 29, on the territory of the former correctional colony No. 210, #Olenivka, in the temporarily occupied territory of the #Donetsk region, there was an explosion. As a result, the building in which Ukrainian prisoners of war were kept was destroyed. (2/16)
According to🇷🇺, more than 50 🇺🇦 defenders were killed, the number of wounded is unknown. According to the comments of 🇷🇺side, not a single worker of the colony, a militant of the "DPR" or 🇷🇺military man who was guarding the premises was injured as a result of the explosion.(3/16)
Immediately after the explosion, 🇷🇺 accused 🇺🇦 of shelling the penal colony with the use of 🇺🇲 weapons and killing 🇺🇦soldiers. In this regard, we declare the following: (4/16)
1.The committed explosion is a cynical terrorist act of🇷🇺, a military provocation and a classic #FalseFlag, the purpose of which is to cover up war crimes, discredit the #ArmedForcesofUkraine, disrupt the supply of Western weapons and increase social tension in🇺🇦society.
The #ArmedForcesofUkraine strike exclusively at🇷🇺🪖facilities: warehouses with fuel, weapons and ammunition,command posts,and🪖 infrastructure facilities. #UAarmy has enough means to identify targets, including🛰️.🇺🇦did not carry out rocket and artillery attacks on Olenivka (6/16)
3. On May 16, with the mediation of the @UN and @ICRC, the process of evacuating the defenders of #Mariupol from the territory of the #Azovstal plant, which had been surrounded and under attack by 🇷🇺 troops for a long time, began. (7/16)
The format of the evacuation provided for the establishment of a regime of silence and the surrender of the Ukrainian military as prisoners, with subsequent exchange under the guarantees of the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross. (8/16)
This format was chosen and approved by the defenders of Mariupol, who participated in the negotiations. On June 29, the first of the planned exchanges of prisoners of war took place, as a result of which 144 defenders returned to 🇺🇦. Among them are 95 Azovstal defenders.(9/16)
4. The key condition of the chosen format was the obligations of the Russian side to international organizations regarding the preservation of the lives and health of Ukrainian defenders. This guarantee was cynically violated. (10/16)
5. On the night of July 29, on the territory of the former correctional colony of the village of an organized killing of Ukrainian prisoners of war took place in Olenivka. (11/16)
The planned nature of this crime and its commission by🇷🇺 side are indicated by many documented evidences:in particular,the deliberate transfer of fighters to a new premises shortly before the explosion,analysis of the nature of the damage and the movement of the blast wave(12/16)
interception of the militants' telephone conversations, the absence of shelling in the specified place, and others. All this leaves no doubt: the explosion in Olenivka was a Russian terrorist act and a gross violation of international agreements. (13/16)
Considering this and other evidence of the deliberate killing of prisoners, Ukraine demands the following:

1. From @UN and @ICRC, which acted as guarantors of the life and health of Ukrainian prisoners of war, to immediately respond to the terrorist act committed by 🇷🇺. (14/16)
2. Immediately send representatives of @UN,@ICRC, the Human Rights Commissioner of @ua_parliament, and representatives of the United Center for the Search and Release of Prisoners to the territory of the colony in Olenivka (15/16)
in the temporarily occupied territory of the #Donetsk region for the purpose of an inspection mission. (16/16)
