According to the Ukrainian Security Service Head’s Adviser’s statement, during the so-called special-forces raid in Avdeevka and Krasnohorovka more than one hundred civilians were arrested by Ukrainian punitive bodies and their destiny stays unclear.

Such Kiev’s actions on the occupied DPR territory distinctly remind of Great Patriotic War times, to be more precise the period of Donbass` Nazi occupation. As well as at that time massive raids are made. As well as at that time accusations in disloyalty towards occupation regime is a verdict in actual fact. As well as at that time mutual whistle-blowing and suspicion are cultivated.

The DPR Ministry of Foreign Affairs turns attention to the fact that such steps directly fall within definition of war crimes against the civilians and should receive an adequate international and legal appraisal.
