Volunteers of humanitarian"Evacuation-200", which evacuated the dead bodies from the ATO area, are forced to suspend their activity, as stated head of mission Jaroslav Zhylkin on his Facebook page.
He named two reasons of this decision. “The reasons are very simple, - writes Zhilkil, - lack of money to repair vehicles (two cars with bald tires need car maintenance), lack of money to pay reimburse to volunteers, supply them with basic materials. Secondly, our undefined status - the guys worked even during their holidays! None of us received status of the ATO participant, but volunteers are really worth of this status”.
“Today is the 318th day since we have begun our work. Hundreds settlements, hundreds of thousands of kilometers passed, hundreds life stories, confessions carried out from the ATO zone. And all this things happened without state’s input!” claimed the volunteer. “Evacuation of the dead bodies does not bring recognition, fame or PR… Moreover, the voter turnout do not include the dead soldiers”.
According to the United Nations, more than 6 thousand people were killed during the conflict in Donbas.
