"We showed in our material Russian soldiers involved in the conflict, they're present with heavy military equipment. Officials of Russian secret services were directly involved. We have gathered evidence that some prisoners were held in prisons in the Russian Federation, in particular in Donetsk in Russia (Rostov region - Ed)," - Gosiewska added.
