Bodies of 286 Women Discovered, 400 Listed Missing in East Ukraine: Donetsk Official

OWoN: More sad and sickening realities of the criminality of war.

This is absolutely shameful and a war crime. So where is the outrage? Western hypocrisy at work in Europe like so many other places in the world previously.
The worst is yet to come in the Ukraine which all of Europe will have to contend with when there is a coup. Just give it six months.

Donetsk – The bodies of 286 women have recently been discovered in the eastern Ukrainian city of Krasnoarmeisk while almost 400 women between the ages of 18 and 25 are still listed as missing, Alexander Zakharchenko, prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic said Friday.

"Around 400 women between the ages of 18 and 25 have gone missing in Krasnoarmeisk where [Ukrainian forces] Dnepr-1 was based. The bodies of 286 women around Krasnoarmeisk who had been raped have been discovered," Zakharchenko said at a meeting with students from Donetsk National Technical University.

The city of Krasnoarmeisk is located some 45 kilometers (28 miles) northwest of Donetsk, the capital of the self-proclaimed republic.

An armed conflict broke out in the southeastern regions of Ukraine in April, when Ukrainian forces launched a military operation against Donbas independence supporters who opposed the February coup in Kiev.

The two conflicting sides agreed to a ceasefire on September 5 during a meeting of the trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine in Minsk. A memorandum specifying the implementation of the ceasefire was adopted at another Contact Group meeting on September 19.

Both sides have subsequently accused each other of violating the truce. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) special monitoring mission in the conflict-torn regions continues to report instances of shelling.



  1. For too long women have been used as disposable sex trophies to be had and thrown away as a military benefit by warring men. This centuries old act must stop.

    If man and woman kind is to move forward we must all realize we all have value, that we are connected and that we all matter.

    The evidence found with these women's bodies will help identify the perpetrators of these vicious crimes and may lead to the freedom or more evidence concerning the remaining 400 women missing. It may be a mixture, but the truth will come to light and those guilty will be charged and dealt with.

    1. Come on P

      All will be put aside for negotiations and diplomacy - and if it would be left for USA to judge - they would give Poroshenko Nobel Prize for Peace -

      Evident crimes in Ukraine from the first day of Maidan ?????? Just think about that.


      When gas attacks in Syria - all shouted justice - Assad is criminal and has to go - well it was not Assad and what happened?

      ----West deployed justice of ISIS ---

      And if you say something openly demanding Fairness, you are extremists or what ----

      I gave up - till I see results on the stage - (I have to protect myself - it does not pay off to view things in just fairness )

  2. Vlastimil, have thought much about what has been happening in the Ukraine. Every day my thoughts are with the people there as elsewhere where terror reigns. They, those who are suffering are blessed daily.

    In this case Vlastimil, the US has no business judging what happens, all must come from honest investigation and laid before the World Court. The numbers speak of War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. It all starts from the beginning of this conflict, not just this latest horror. There is evidence to be had and it will be shown honestly who is responsible. It is also likely the operandus modi will be matched to like events in other places.

    Some that we know leads right back here to the US and will be watching when those ones are charged as they should be. Their time comes.

    That's the one thing that keeps me going is seeing those guilty charged. I can't give up, too many people I care about have been hurt by these ones. Making people aware is what can do now.
