The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People's Republic supports the interest and attention among the deputies of the European Parliament to the conflict in Donbass and recommends to use facts, but not conjectures.
On April 5, the so-called reports "The Russian war crimes in the Eastern Ukraine" were presented in the European parliament (http://www.donbasswarcrimes.org/report/ ) and "28 Kremlin hostages" (http://en.odfoundation.eu/i/fmfiles/pdf/28hostages-eng-ccl-mf-web-final.pdf).
The authorship of the report on war crimes belongs to Małgorzata Gosiewska - the Polish politician and the member of European Parliament. In the presentation took part
Nikolay Tochitsky (the ambassador of Ukraine to the EU), Jean Picto (the president of the Polish-Ukrainian organization of cooperation), Alexander Pavlichenko (member of the Kharkov group on protection of human rights), victims Irina Dovgan and Alexander Homchenko.
According to the data of the DPR Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the so-called report was prepared by authors who had never visited the territory of the Donetsk Republic, and it contains
pictures mainly taken from the social networks and other mass media which truthfulness is extremely doubtful. As it is specified in the report, all data have been obtained from the victims and witnesses of Russia's crimes, who were in the anti-terrorist operation zone, but the authors do not have interviews with names, "for reasons of safety of the victims and witnesses". There isn't even a fact in this report proving the presence of the Russian military in Donbass. Besides, these doubtful statements contradict the data of the official OSCE mission which constantly is in Donbass and on the contact line.
The Ministry of the DPR Foreign Affairs offers the European deputies wishing to obtain real information on the situation in Donbass to use official and reliable sources or visit the Republic by the invitation of the authorities. Security will be guaranteed.
