With the Defenders of Mariupol No Connection

The captured defenders of the Ukrainian metallurgical plant "Azovstal" do not contact their relatives

The last defenders of Mariupol, the Donetsk region, surrendered on the orders of the Ukrainian military command in mid-May. Since then, only one fighter has made contact with his family. He said that Ukrainian prisoners are kept in good conditions, not beaten, or fed.

However, more than 1.000 soldiers of the Azov regiment were taken to the occupied territories. And none of them comes into contact with families or friends. This is a serious cause for concern. The occupiers have already shown themselves as opponents of the laws of war and human rights. Maybe one phone call from a prisoner of war is one of the morally broken tortured soldiers.

Another wife of the defender Azovstal, Tatiana told her that her husband called her secretly from an unknown number. He said that he and his comrades were in the occupied territory of the Donetsk region. There was no contact from the man. Another woman in the Ukrainian military does not know what has happened to her boyfriend since May 11.

"The International Committee of the Red Cross contacted my boyfriend's mother. I don't remember when. They just told her he was alive, that's all," said the fiansey of the prisoner from Mariupol.

Let us recall that recently the head of the Donetsk People's Republic has declared the need to execute Ukrainian soldiers from the Azov regiment.
