UN mission will visit Olenivka to establish circumstances surrounding deaths of Ukrainian POW
The UN fact-finding mission is expected to arrive in the next few days in occupied Olenivka, where over 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war were killed at the end of July.
This was stated by the Organization's Deputy Secretary General for Political Affairs, Rosemarie Di Carlo, at a meeting of the UN Security Council on Wednesday.
"The head of the mission, General Carlos Alberto de Santos Cruz, is traveling with a team of senior officials and experts. The mission must carry out its mission without any hindrance, with full access to people, places and evidence," Di Carlo said.
She noted the "constructive approach and preparation for this mission" on the part of Ukraine and Russia, and added that the UN is counting on their further assistance.
