No less than 2,000 people went missing during the Donbas conflict, says the Head of ICRС delegation in Ukraine Allen Ashliman to “TASS”.

“According to the information we have, approximately 2,000 people are missing and we hear nothing from them,” – he said.

Allen Ashliman pointed out that ICRC managed to meet about 580 people in 30 places of deprivation of liberty on territories controlled by Kyiv authorities. Ashliman explained they were imprisoned as a consequence of Donbas conflict.  

He added the Committee is cooperating with Ukrainian authorities to access everyone detained in relation to Donbas conflict.

Allen Ashliman said that in 2015 the Red Cross visited 4 injured captives in occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.  

“Since then we did not get a chance to visit more captives in the occupied territories. We are trying to improve the situation in the region and gain access to these people to help local authorities provide proper conditions for them,” – he added.
