Ukraine will demonstrate MEPs 'murder weapons' used by Russian-backed militants in the Donbas region.

"Military medics say that injuries inflicted upon our military testify to the brutal nature of Russia's war against Ukraine. Medics who have been in various hot spots say they have never seen such terrible wounds", said Herashchenko and added: "For the last two years medics in some Dnipro's hospital saved lives of more than 2,000 Ukrainian troops".
"This is the right initiative to show what weapons are used to kill Ukrainians. And our task is to demonstrate the evidence to the world. MEPs will see it even in August when they come to Ukraine. We will do everything to let as many Europeans as possible see 'murderous exhibits' - weapons used to kill Ukrainians", Herashchenko added.
10,000 Ukrainians were killed by ‘Russian-terrorist forces' over the past two years, since the conflict in the Donbas region broke out. Recently reported Ukraine's Defence Council. More than 20,000 have been wounded and 1.8 million forced to flee their homes.
