"After difficult negotiations of the Ukrainian side (...) with representatives of the Russian occupation forces, an agreement was finally reached; a human body was transferred to the territory controlled by the Ukrainian government at the Mariinka checkpoint," the message says.
It is noted that there is no confirmation that this is the body of the previously deceased military medic. The body is now being transported to the place of DNA examination.
As we reported before, in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas, a military medic was killed during the evacuation of the deceased and wounded.
Militants attacked three doctors who were supposed to evacuate a military man who died today, having been blown up on an unknown explosive device near the village of Zaitseve.
On June 17, U.S. Department of the State offers Ukraine condolences due to the recent murder of Ukrainian medic in Donbas, as Russian mercenaries continue to attack positions of Ukraine's government forces there.
