Amnesty International has not found any conclusive evidence of mass murders or mass graves in the Donbas conflict zone, Director of Amnesty International in Ukraine Tatiana Mazur said on Monday.


"[However], we’ve seen isolated incidents of extrajudicial executions, which in some cases are the equivalent of war crimes,” Mazur said.

“These violations have to be brought to an end. All cases in which there is reasonable suspicion should be properly investigated, and the perpetrators on both sides must be brought to justice."

Mazur also said that it was obvious that some of the most shocking cases that were reported, particularly in the Russian media, were greatly exaggerated.
