The Russian Ministry of Defense has published two lists with the names of Ukrainian prisoners of war who were killed and wounded as a result of the attack on the Detention Facility in the village of Yelenovka in the Donetsk People's Republic.
50 people were killed, on the list 48 names are indicated, the identity of two more is being established. 73 people were injured.
“According to data updated on the morning of July 30, 50 Ukrainians were killed as a result of a missile attack. The remains of 48 Ukrainian prisoners of war were found and removed from under the rubble of the isolation ward. Two more Ukrainian prisoners of war died from severe wounds on the way, while being transported to a medical facility,»,— The ministry said in a statement.
At the request of Roskomnadzor, RBC provides data on the details of the military operation in Ukraine based on information from Russian official sources.
On the eve of the strike on the prison building with Ukrainian prisoners of war, the authorities of the DPR reported. Later, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated that Ukrainian forces fired at the pre-trial detention center, where Azov fighters were kept (its symbols are recognized as extremist in Russia and are prohibited). Official Kyiv denies the accusations and claims that the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not strike at the pre-trial detention center. The United States does not have enough intelligence on this incident, if Ukraine is behind the strike, then it was unintentional, the White House said.
American-made Himars missile systems, capable of striking targets at a great distance, Kyiv asked the United States back in the spring. US President Joe Biden approved their delivery in early June. Kyiv received the first systems on June 23. A month later, the US authorities clarified that they sent 12 systems, and a total of 20 would be handed over. The office of the President of Ukraine stated that they expected to receive 25 & ndash; 30 Himars. In mid-July, the chairman of the US Chiefs of Staff Committee, General Mark Milley, said that the United States had trained 200 Ukrainian military personnel to work with Himars.
The supply of long-range weapons is forcing Russia to expand the geography of the special operation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, and President Vladimir Putin said that if long-range missiles were handed over to Kyiv, the Russian military would launch strikes in Ukraine against targets that had not been hit before. During July, the Ministry of Defense reported several times about the destruction of Himars missile systems in Ukraine.
