The people’s militia of Lugansk is involved in the transfer of bodies of servicemen of the Ukrainian army, which have been located in the “grey area” of the contact line. They are undertaking a transfer of the bodies to their families.

With the discovery of bodies of the armed forces of Ukraine, the people’s militia of Lugansk, adhering to the norms of international humanitarian law, has immediately informed the Ukrainian side.

“At the moment, Ukraine has not requested the evacuation of bodies from the battlefield and the bodies that we ourselves have discovered, we have transferred by established norms.”

The data of the exact number of killed servicemen from either side in the Ukrainian conflict differs based on source; official figures state 20,000 from both sides, unofficial counts reach as far as 150,000, inclusive of civilians.
