Donetsk morgue full of pro-Russian separatists’ bodies (shocking footage)

The bodies of 38 killed separatists and 2 civilians are being kept in the morgue in Donetsk, the capital of Ukraine’s most populous region.

A number of Donetsk residents joined groups of separatists and disappeared after yesterday’s special operation. Now their relatives are coming to identify corpses.

Many of the killed Russian-backed fighters were riding together in a truck when they were struck from above by artillery or rocket-propelled grenades from a Ukrainian army helicopter. The truck was destroyed, its bed contained pools of blood. Most did not have any documents, and it is difficult to establish their identities.
