Serhiy Kyslytsia stated this on Monday at a meeting of the UN Security Council on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
"Given that the Russian leadership is trying to hide the real losses and strongly denies any talk of ways to repatriate the bodies of their soldiers, Ukraine faces an additional threat of a health crisis. We are talking about many thousands of bodies decomposing in the fields of Ukraine - the bodies of Russian soldiers,” he said.
In this regard, Ukraine calls on the International Committee of the Red Cross to create a database of defeated occupiers and prisoners of war on the basis of the ICRC Central Tracing Agency, as well as assistance in returning the remains of Russia invaders.
As Ukrinform reported, Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk stated that the Russian leadership flatly refused to remove its fallen soldiers from Ukraine.
