The Ukrainian Ombudsman does not have high hopes for the Red Cross Committee and is waiting for the arrival of a separate UN mission that will investigate the Russian terrorist attack in Olenivka.
Dmytro Lubinets, the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights, said this on the air of the nationwide information telethon.
The ombudsman said that he does not have high hopes for the Red Cross Committee, because for a long time it could not officially confirm that Russia does not allow them either to the detention center where our prisoners died, or to the surviving Ukrainian soldiers.
“However, we are waiting for a separate UN mission, which was created on the basis of the UN Secretary General’s statement, which will investigate what happened in Olenivka. Regarding the wounded – we see many coincidences with the lists of wounded and dead officially published by Russia”– notes Lubinets.
The Red Cross stated that they did not guarantee the safety of prisoners from “Azovstal”The ICRC emphasizes that the organization acted as a neutral mediator for the safe exit of the military from Azovstal in Mariupol.

According to his words, the Russian invaders do not allow representatives of Ukraine to meet with the wounded, so that we do not get accurate data. Currently, Ukrainian intelligence officers are making tremendous efforts to find out what exactly happened in Olenivka.
“Although our military experts stated that an explosive device was detonated inside the pre-trial detention center, which produces a high temperature. All international experts involved in this case agreed with these conclusions.Lubinets emphasized.
We will remind you that on the night of July 29, at least 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war died in the colony in Olenivka, Donetsk region. Russia said that Ukraine allegedly struck the colony with a HIMARS surface-to-air missile.
However, experts are inclined to believe that the blow was inflicted by a Russian thermobaric weapon.
Intelligence reports that Russia is still working on fabricating evidence to accuse Ukraine of carrying out the attack on the colony in Olenivka, where about 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war were killed.
At the same time, Russia has not yet allowed the Red Cross to visit Ukrainian prisoners of war in Olenivka.
