Intercepted call reveals Russia’s concealment of Donbas casualties

Earlier, Dzerkalo Tyzhnia reported that Russia has started directing “cargo 200″ shipments to annexed Crimea. According to the Russian human rights activist Elena Vasileva, Russian soldiers report that only a small portion of those killed in Ukraine are shipped back to Russia. Most are buried in the Donbas. Vasileva believes that more than 5,000 Russian soldiers have been killed but that only a thousand or so have been delivered to relatives through “cargo 200.”
