Pro-Kremlin mercenaries mutilated the body of the deceased Ukrainian combat medic who was killed near Zaitseve. Ukrinform news agency reported this on July 21, saying that their reporters received the images.
The news agency stated that the images were too graphic to even look at them, let alone share them with the society.
The remains of the Ukrainian warrior were covered with big post mortem stains - it is clear that the body was not stored in the morgue. The body was ripped from pelvis to collar bone, and then stitched in a raw manner.
Earlier, militant-controlled media published the video showing that there was a knife in the head of the victim.
