On the outskirts of Donetsk, militia fighters discovered new mass graves of civilians. Representatives of the People's Republic of Donetsk believe that the civilians were killed by National Guard soldiers, as the Ukrainian troops had been staying in the settlement, where the graves were found, since April, whereas Donetsk militia occupied the village only on September 21, RIA Novosti reports.

However, Kiev officials deny the information. Earlier, a representative of the Council of National Security and Defense of Ukraine, Andrey Lysenko, said that "no soldier of the National Guard was ever staying in the location."

Prime Minister of the People's Republic of Donetsk Alexander Zakharchenko told the Russian News Service that there were three burials of civilians found - about 40 dead bodies of civilians, prisoners of war and Ukrainian militia soldiers.

According to Zakharchenko, an examination of the bodies showed that the victims lacked internal organs. However, he noted, it remains unclear whether the organs had been harvested at the time when the victims were alive or dead.

OSCE observers confirmed reports about the discovery of three mass graves in the Donetsk region, in the village of Nizhnyaya Krynka and its surroundings on September 23.

Chairman of Just Russia Party, head of the party faction in the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Sergei Mironov, commenting on the reports, said that the Duma suggested establishing an international commission to investigate crimes against humanity and war crimes against civilians in Ukraine.

"What happened near Donetsk is a familiar pattern of Nazis. We recall well-known facts from the history of World War II, when, after the liberation of territories seized by Nazi occupiers, numerous burial grounds were found, where people had been  tortured and shot. It is obvious for us that those who call themselves the Ukrainian government must be held accountable for that. It is also obvious that the Kiev government will deny any involvement in the crimes, as they denied the tragedy of May 2 in Odessa. This is the reasons why one needs to establish an international commission, because every crime should be investigated, perpetrators should be found and punished accordingly. This investigation should go openly, including with the involvement of the international court. Our task is to insist on this. We can not ignore such facts," Mironov said.

Noteworthy, the Facebook account of Yulia Tymoshenko's former lawyer, Sergei Vlasenko, was hacked in July. His correspondence with German doctor Olga Wieber and commander of "Donbass" battalion of the National Guard, Semyon Semyonchenko, was exposed to the general public. In the correspondence, the sides discussed organ trafficking.

Thus, in one of the messages, Wieber wrote in detail, which organs were needed:  "17 hearts, 50 kidneys, new livers - 35 pieces, 30 pancreases and 5 lungs." Vlasenko responded with a promise to deliver all the organs. Vlasenko also wrote that Semenchenko should collect organs appropriately, not to deliver "bad quality" organs again.
