Scary finding: the bones are put in bags (photo)

In a mass grave there are the remains of victims of mass repressions

In Ivano-Frankivsk there was discovered a mass grave of at least 50 people who, presumably, were victims of repression. The remains are in an anatomical integrity, but the location of the bodies has no order.

The terrible finding was discovered when laying the electrical cable beside the central city lake. At first the workers of Prykarpattyaoblenergo did not attach importance to the finding because close the old cemetery was situated. However, local residents called the police not to allow to fill in the grave.  

Now the excavations at the burial site of are carried out by lead scientists of Pamiat Ivano-Frankivsk Municipal Enterprise. Just for the day the researchers found about two bags of human bones and household items.

According to Vasiliy Tymkiv, Head of Pamiat Communal Enterprise, the scales of the burial is difficult to assess, however, judging by the length and depth of the trench, it can be argued that it comes at least 50 victims. 

The area was used for burial of victims of both Communist and Nazi regime, historians say. However, taking into account the particularities of the burial, the researchers tend to believe that in this tomb there are the remains of victims of the NKVD.   

We will remind that at the territory of Pokrovsk integrated plant during the excavations of Scythian burial mound the archaeologists found the grave of a young girl.

As said Sergey Polin (PhD in history), Head of the expedition, the girl was "a kind of Amazon" and most likely deceased in action.
