Ukrainian military authorities today loaded the corpses of Russian soldiers they collected after the fighting in Kyiv and the Chernihiv region into refrigerated wagons.
Volodymyr Liamzin, head of the civil-military cooperation service, said his country was acting in accordance with international law and was ready to return the dead to Russia.
“According to international humanitarian law, which Ukraine faithfully follows, once the phase of active conflict is over, the parties must return the bodies of the other country’s soldiers. “Ukraine is ready to return the bodies to the attacker,” he said.
Liamzin said there are many refrigerated trains parked in various parts of Ukraine, where the bodies of Russian soldiers are kept. Hundreds of people are in a facility on the outskirts of Kiev, according to a video taken by Reuters.
“Hundreds of corpses of Russian occupiers are kept in this refrigerated train. “Most were transported from the Kiev region, some from Chernihiv and some from other regions as well,” Liamzin said.
