During the ongoing fights near the Svitlodarsk bulge, Ukraine’s military suffered new casualties and witnessed another case of cruelty that Russia-backed rebels show against POWs. Semen Kabakayev, volunteer and coordinator of StopTerror project posted this at Facebook.  

‘Two of our soldiers were wounded during the fight. They were captured by either local militants or the Russian mercenaries – we don’t know so far. The enemy filmed them being taken hostages and sent us the video as a piece of evidence. I stand corrected here: any enemy deserves respect, and these guys don’t. They refused to exchange them, and no one wanted to talk to our servicemen. Then, they took the hostages to Debaltseve, tortured and humiliated them, and eventually killed them. They sent us the photos, too,’ Kabakayev wrote.

The area of Svitlodarsk bulge in Donetsk region remains the hottest spot in the entire combat area in Donbas.
