Nearly 1,600 People Classified as “Missing” in Junta-Occupied DNR per Captured Putschist Documents

Handcuffed Suspect


Our sources told us that documents of the so-called putschist “Donetsk Oblast Genprokuratura” indicate that there were 1,592 missing persons in junta-occupied areas.  One document noted, “This year, the number of missing persons in the oblast (sic) continues to grow substantially. As of 1 June 2015, there are already 1,592 people missing”. The text also details the operational and search activities of junta police in the putschist-occupied DNR, “Over the first five months of this year, we confirmed the whereabouts of 208 missing persons. In these cases, our office considers the search closed. With a marked increase in the number of missing, we only found 13 percent of those so classified”. The documents emphasise that the number of missing is increasing significantly in junta-occupied territory, especially in Artyomovsk, Mariupol, Selidovo, Slavyansk, Kramatorsk, and Dzerzhinsk, and in Maryinsk Raion. A junta Genprokuratura report stated, “There is a significantly increased number of missing persons in Artyomovsk (115), Selidovo (88), Slavyansk (82), Kramatorsk (69), Dzerzhinsk (61), and Maryinsky Raion (69), and in Oktyabrsky Raion of Mariupol (66)”. The reports also point up that problems remain in finding people, “especially during the active phase of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (sic)” in junta-occupied areas.
