Russia To Send Mobile Crematoriums To Ukraine To Conceal Evidence Of Casualties: Report


As Russia gears up to deploy more troops to Ukraine, there are reports that Moscow could also dispatch mobile crematoriums in its arsenal in order to conceal the evidence of casualties in the war Russian President Vladimir Putin unleashed against Kyiv. The speculations come after the British Ministry of Defence shared a video of Russian portable incinerators that they claimed would be sent at tails of the invading forces to "evaporate" deceased soldiers, The Telegraph reported.

If I was a soldier and knew that my generals had so little faith in me that they followed me around the battlefield with a mobile crematorium, or I was the mother or father of a son, potentially deployed into a combat zone, and my government thought that the way to cover up losses was a mobile crematorium, I’d be deeply, deeply worried,” UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told the paper.

Referring to the footage from 2013 which shows a transportable crematorium for biological waste, Wallace added that "it is a very chilling side effect of how the Russians view their forces." Wallace recalled this is not the first time Russia will be dispatching mobile crematoriums "to follow troops around the battlefield." He noted, "They have done things previously", which "probably says everything you need to know about the Russian regime."....

According to the former Ukrainian Defence security head, Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, these vehicles can cremate "8-10 bodies per day." Speaking to Ukrainian media in 2015, Nalyvaichenko had said, "Every day, the hotline of the Security Service of Ukraine records a great number of calls from dozens of Russian citizens who are looking for their relatives or Russian soldiers who have been sent to the territory of Ukraine […] The Ukrainian government will be humane and will return the bodies of the Russian soldiers to their mothers with all documents and personal effects," Snopes reported.
