Ukrainian authorities frequently accuse Russian troops of committing war crimes in areas they have seized since invading Ukrainian territory on February 24. Moscow denies this.

Last year, 436 bodies were exhumed in the northeastern city of Izium after it was recaptured by Ukrainian armed forces. In most cases, these were people who met a violent death, according to the authorities.

Mr Kirilenko, the governor of Donetsk region, said in his post that the mass grave was believed to contain “both soldiers and civilians” and that “their exact number has not yet been confirmed”.

He added that a site with about 200 graves, containing the bodies of civilians, was also identified. He did not say when or how they died.
