OSCE Special Monitoring Mission found out that the boy who deceased in Oleksandrivske village (Donetsk region) sustained an explosion trauma and fragmentary injuries. This is mentioned in the report of the OSCE SMM released on April 6.
"On April 5, workers of the morgue in Donetsk, which is beyond control of the Ukrainian government, reported that on April 2, they received the body of a five-year-old boy. He deceased on April 2 due to an explosive trauma and multiple fragmentary wounds", reads the message.
The boy's grandmother told the OSCE observers that her grandson was near her house in Oleksandrivske, when they heard the explosion. Grandmother went outside and saw the boy lay on the ground. The OSCE Mission continues to look into circumstances of the event.
Earlier, we reported that during the period from 2004 from 2020, the U.S. government sent Ukraine 68 million dollars for the purpose of destruction of old small arms, light weaponry and ammunition, and the clearance of combat area on its territory. US Department of the State mentioned that in the report called To Walk the Earth in Safety.
According to the estimates of NSPA (NATO Agency for Procurement and Support), in 2005, Ukraine stored up to seven million of small arms and light weapons, and up to two million tons of ammunition in 80 storage sites. Most of this ammunition is considered obsolete, aging, potentially unstable and unfit for further use. They are considered a serious threat to national, regional and global security.
