According to her, in the summer of 2014, during the occupation by the Ukrainian Armed Forces of the Lutugino region, the son from the first days helped the people’s militia, for which he was repeatedly subjected to torture by the Ukrainian Armed Forces,” added the press service.
The mother of the deceased said that she immediately recognized her pink sandals in which her son came out of the house in towards the Ukrainian Armed Forces during the August evening.
“I identified him by the things in which he left the house and never came back… It is a t-shirt, shorts, sandals. It was during the evening hours, at probably 10. They knocked, called Evgeny,” said Salamatina. He calmly came out wearing my pink women’s sandals, because he never was going to leave, he simply went outside”.
“He was taken by a group of soldiers, six people. They were dressed in military uniforms, and they had weapons,” she added.
It was recalled by the Ministry of State Security that the discovered bone remains were sent for a forensic medical examination to come to a conclusion about the damage on the remains, the nature and mechanism of their formation.
