The Russians give Ukraine the bodies of dead soldiers with such deep putrid changes that even sometimes, there is nothing to take DNA material. These are the remains; the stage of decomposition is terrible.

The head of the patronage service of the “Azov” regiment, Olena Tolkachova, told about it.
“Currently, we receive the fallen in such a state that it is complicated to recognize them, even their tattoos are no longer there. The scheduling stage is terrible,” she said in an interview.
Ukraine, unlike the Russian Federation, transports the bodies of liquidated Russian occupiers to appropriate conditions for storage so that later there is an opportunity to get to know them in person.
“The temperature is very low there, they (Russians) are stored in special boxes, so they do not decompose. We provide them in such a condition that they can be recognized visually. And the Russians give us just the remains, so damaged, the putrid changes are so deep that even sometimes there is nothing to take DNA material from,” Tolkachova emphasized.
The head of the patronage service of the “Azov” regiment said that negotiations are currently underway on cooperation with the German “Planka” community, whose specialists have vast experience and high-quality equipment for deciphering DNA profiles.
Tolkacheva also added that the exchange fund of liquidated Russians for exchange for Ukrainian soldiers is being collected by the “Evacuation of fallen on the shield” unit of the General Staff.
“They work day and night. They don’t have days off. They are constantly collecting these dead for the exchange fund to exchange for our dead. They perform a difficult job when they go to the contact line and there they exchange bodies,” added the head of the patronage service of the “Azov” regiment.
- We will remind you that the Russians shelled a colony in the village of Yelenovka, Donetsk region. As a result of the shelling, several dozen Ukrainians, including “Azovians”, were killed. The “Azov” regiment announced a hunt for all those involved in this mass murder. The Russian Federation still allows the Red Cross to Yelenovka, where Ukrainian prisoners died.
