Russia-backed mercenaries deliberately block the process of passing the dead bodies of Ukrainian soldiers killed in action on May 2. The Ukrainian military reported that at Facebook.  

According to the message, the militants appoint the time of meeting with the Ukrainian delegation and then repeatedly change the time of passing bodies. ‘Since May 2, the Ukrainian side is ready to receive the bodies of the deceased warriors and to pass them to their relatives. However, members of the armed gangs have been breaching their own promises, changing the time of appointment and the very procedure, respectively. Representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been always returning bodies of the deceased enemies – without any foot-dragging or manipulations in their favor,’ the message says.  

On May 2, three Ukrainian warriors heroically perished, saving their wounded comrade, in the area of the Svitlodarsk bulge, Donetsk region.
