This story has been picked up on Twitter (#Red Cross Mariupol):
Russia to probe claims of suspicious activity by Red Cross
The Ukrainian branch of the aid group allegedly catalogued children with healthy organs
The Russian Investigative Committee said on Sunday it will look into allegations the Ukrainian Red Cross Society was involved in shady activities, including keeping records of children with “healthy organs” in the city of Mariupol.
The claim came from Vladimir Taranenko, the head of the Donetsk-based civic organization ‘People’s Retinue,’ a volunteer movement that states as one of its goals assisting law enforcement in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).
The activist posted a video of what he called a search of the Red Cross office in Mariupol on his social media and claimed some of the evidence found there casts the group in a very suspicious light.
He claimed the office had medical records for over 1,000 children, but they marked their “healthy organs” instead of any medical conditions or procedures.
Taranenko also claimed that some of the reading materials discovered at the office were instructions on “how to use weapons, including in a format intended for children.”
The video showed at least one military-related manual. It was a printout of “Practical Military Ordnance Identification” by Thomas Gersbeck, a retired US Marines Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technician. The book is a field manual on how to identify unexploded munitions and handle them in a safe manner.
Taranenko has said that DPR investigators will “shed light” on the activities of the society. The Russian committee said it will add the video to a list of evidence it already has regarding suspected crimes by Kiev.
Mariupol is a major port city in the DPR. It was liberated by Russian and Donbass forces during the ongoing military campaign against Ukraine.
Neither the Ukrainian society nor the International Committee of the Red Cross would immediately comment on the allegations.
Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.
The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
RED CROSS ACCUSED OF ORGAN TRAFFICKING: CHILDREN OF DONBASS BECAME VICTIMS – EVSEEV
As a result of a survey (ER: search?) of the Red Cross base in Mariupol, hundreds of medical records for children were found. Military expert Vladimir Evseev told why they were planted and what goals they contributed to.
Tsargrad previously reported that hundreds of medical cards for children were found at the headquarters of the Red Cross mission. There is no information about diseases in them, but there are notes about healthy organs. It was clarified that the records were made in Latin.
So why does the Red Cross, which was in Mariupol when the Ukrainian military were there, need such a selection of medical records with information about the healthy organs of children? The answer to this question was given by military expert Vladimir Evseev. He recalled that the Ukronazis had been organizing the delivery of human organs to Europe for a long time.
At first, this was done in this way: a representative of them or the Armed Forces of Ukraine was on the verge of death, after that they contacted his relatives, received consent, the organ was seized,
– explained the expert.
When this scheme was worked through, they switched to civilians in Donbass, mainly paying attention to girls and children.
This is actually a confirmation that if Russia had not launched a special operation in Ukraine, then some part of the children in the Donbass would have actually been put on organs. And they did it under the roof of the Red Cross,
For example, intelligence information was also obtained through the OSCE (ER: Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe), and then the Ukronazis used the information to hit the Russians, the expert recalled. It’s the same with the Red Cross. But it is necessary to conduct an investigation in order to more accurately establish the details, Evseev concluded.
