ロシア、捕虜収容所爆破事件の調査のため国連と赤十字の専門家を招聘

Russia invites UN and Red Cross experts to investigate POW camp bombing
Moscow earlier blamed Ukraine for the strike, saying US-made HIMARS rocket launchers were used to carry it out
The Russian Defense Ministry announced on Sunday that it had officially invited independent experts from the UN and the Red Cross to investigate the shelling of a detention center in Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). The Friday bombing killed 50 prisoners, with dozens more wounded.

“In the interest of conducting an objective investigation of the strike on the detention center in Yelenovka, which led to the deaths of many Ukrainian prisoners of war, the Russian Federation has officially invited experts from the UN and the International Red Cross Committee,” the ministry said.

The facility in Yelenovka, south of Donetsk, housed hundreds of Ukrainian prisoners – mainly members of the “Azov” neo-Nazi militia who surrendered in Mariupol in May.

According to the Russian military’s earlier statement, the strike was conducted using US-made HIMARS multiple rocket launchers.

“All political, criminal and moral responsibility for the bloodbath against Ukrainians is borne personally by Zelensky, his criminal regime and Washington, which supports them,” Moscow said.

The Ukrainian military released a statement on Friday, accusing Russian troops of shelling the town. Moscow destroyed the prison in order to pin the blame on Kiev, as well as to “hide the torture of prisoners and executions," the statement alleged.

However, the DPR military suggested it was the Ukrainian authorities who had the reason to “deliberately” target the facility. The republic’s head, Denis Pushilin, said “Azov” members had been providing testimonies about possible war crimes by their commanders. The Kiev authorities also knew exactly where the “Azov” prisoners were being held, DPR militia spokesman Eduard Basurin told reporters.

Meanwhile, unlike the government in Kiev, Ukraine’s backers in Washington did not rush to blame the bombing on Moscow.

“We just don’t have enough information to speak intelligently about these very early reports,” John Kirby, spokesman for the US National Security Council, told reporters.

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. The protocols, brokered by Germany and France, were first signed in 2014. Former Ukrainian president Pyotr Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and “create powerful armed forces.”

In February 2022, the Kremlin recognized the Donbass republics as independent states and demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join any Western military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked.
ロシア、捕虜収容所爆破事件の調査のため国連と赤十字の専門家を招聘
ロシア、国連と赤十字の専門家を招き、捕虜収容所爆破事件の調査を依頼
モスクワは先に、米国製のHIMARSロケットランチャーが攻撃に使用されたとし、ウクライナを非難している。
ロシア国防省は日曜日、ドネツク人民共和国(DPR)の収容所への砲撃について調査するため、国連と赤十字から独立した専門家を正式に招いたと発表した。金曜日の爆撃で50人の囚人が死亡し、さらに数十人が負傷した。

"多くのウクライナ人捕虜の死につながったイエレノフカの収容施設への攻撃について客観的な調査を行うため、ロシア連邦は国連と国際赤十字委員会の専門家を正式に招聘した "と同省は述べている。

ドネツクの南にあるイエレノフカの施設には、数百人のウクライナ人捕虜が収容されており、主に5月にマリウポルで降伏したネオナチ民兵「アゾフ」のメンバーが収容されていた。

ロシア軍の発表によると、この攻撃は米国製のHIMARS多連装ロケットランチャーを使用して行われた。

「ウクライナ人に対する大虐殺の政治的、犯罪的、道徳的責任はすべて、ゼレンスキーと彼の犯罪的政権、そして彼らを支援するワシントンが個人的に負っている」と、モスクワは述べた。

ウクライナ軍は金曜日に声明を発表し、ロシア軍が町を砲撃したことを非難した。モスクワが刑務所を破壊したのは、キエフに責任を負わせるためであり、また「囚人への拷問と処刑を隠すため」だと、声明は主張している。

しかし、共和国軍は、この施設を「意図的に」狙う理由があるのはウクライナ当局であることを示唆した。同共和国軍のデニス・プシーリン司令官は、「アゾフ」隊員が指揮官による戦争犯罪の可能性について証言していると述べた。キエフ当局も「アゾフ」の捕虜がどこに収容されているかを正確に知っていたと、民兵のエドゥアルド・バズリン報道官は記者団に語った。

一方、キエフの政府とは異なり、ワシントンのウクライナの支持者は、爆撃をモスクワのせいにすることを急がなかった。

米国家安全保障会議のジョン・カービー報道官は記者団に対し、「我々は、この初期の報告について知的に話すのに十分な情報を持っていない」と述べた。

ロシアは2月24日にウクライナに軍隊を派遣した。キエフがドネツクとルガンスクの地域にウクライナ国家内での特別な地位を与えることを目的としたミンスク協定を履行していないことを理由にしたものである。ドイツとフランスが仲介したこの議定書は、2014年に初めて署名された。ウクライナのピョートル・ポロシェンコ前大統領はその後、キエフの主な目的は、停戦を利用して時間を稼ぎ、"強力な武装勢力を生み出すこと "だったと認めている。

2022年2月、クレムリンはドンバス共和国を独立国家として認め、ウクライナが西側軍事ブロックに決して参加しない中立国であることを公式に宣言するよう要求した。キエフは、ロシアの攻撃は完全に無抵抗であると主張している。

Russia blames Zelensky and US for POW ‘bloodbath’
The Ukrainian leader and his American backers are guilty of shelling prisoners, Moscow insists
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is personally responsible, along with the United States, for the fatal shelling of a detention facility in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Russia’s Defense Ministry claimed on Saturday.

According to the ministry’s statement, a missile strike using US-made HIMARS multiple rocket launchers on a prison near the village of Yelenovka killed 50 POWs, while 73 were hospitalized with severe injuries.

The ministry added that the remains of 48 Ukrainian prisoners of war were found and extracted from underneath the rubble, while two inmates succumbed to their wounds on the way to a medical facility.

“All political, criminal and moral responsibility for the bloodbath against Ukrainians is borne personally by Zelensky, his criminal regime and Washington, which supports them,” the statement reads.

Earlier this week, Eduard Basurin, the spokesman for the DPR's army, said that Kiev knew exactly where the POWs were being held, because Kiev “itself determined the place of detention.”

The DPR official also noted that the prison could have been targeted by Kiev in order to hide atrocities “after the Ukrainian prisoners of war began to talk about the crimes that they had committed on the orders of their commanders.”

The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that the facility had held members of Ukraine’s Azov Battalion, whose fighters surrendered to Russian and Donbass forces during the siege of the Azovstal steel factory in Mariupol.

Kiev has categorically denied these allegations and claims Russia is responsible for the strike, saying that Moscow sought to blame Ukraine for committing ‘war crimes’.

Russia and allied forces have repeatedly accused Ukraine of shelling civilian infrastructure with various heavy weaponry, including HIMARS.

According to the Pentagon, as of July 22, the US has provided Ukraine with 16 M142 HIMARS systems, while the UK has delivered another three launchers capable of firing the same munitions. Last week, the Russian military said it had destroyed four of the rocket launching systems, a claim that was dismissed by Kiev as “misinformation.”
