"Unidentified persons among the top political and military leadership of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Armed Forces, National Guard and Pravy Sector gave orders aimed at the complete elimination of Russian-speaking nationals residing on the territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics," the statement said.

Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said that "no less than 2,500 people" had died as a result of their actions.
