The Union of Volunteers of Donbass can not officially help Donbass defenders, who have been detained by the Ukrainian side, but the organization has developed its own scheme of anonymous monthly assistance to prisoners, stated a Union's leader Andrei Pinchuk.
"We have launched a programme to provide food rations for political prisoners - our comrades, who are kept in Ukrainian prisons. We try to do this anonymously to a certain extent. If this is done officially on behalf of the UVD, the Ukrainian side blocks every effort. We operate according to our list, which is constantly updated. We have already worked out our own technology for the transfer of rations, which we conduct monthly," Pinchuk said.
