On December 10, 2014, the allocation of 80 hectares of agricultural land in the Dnepropetrovsk region for a cemetery for those killed in the ATO was discussed at the meeting of the Administration of the President of Ukraine.
“The fourth wave of mobilization is beginning in Ukraine,”- said the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak.
On this occasion, the Ukrainian government decided to finally take care of the thousands of bodies of soldiers and officers, which remain in Donbass region, abandoned and unburied.
On December 10, at the administration of the President of Ukraine, Chairman of the Parliamentary Health Committee Olga Bogomolets held a meeting on issues related to the identification, transportation and burial of the dead soldiers.
One of the key issues of the meeting was the establishment of a cemetery for soldiers who died in the Civil War in Donbass. The losses of the Ukrainian army are such that the authorities are asking as many as 80 hectares of agricultural land in the Dnepropetrovsk region.
80 acres is 800 000 square meters of land.
This is 112 Olympic football fields.
If we proceed from the fact that the standard grave covers an area of 3 square meters (2m x 1.5m), it turns out that 80 hectares can accommodate 267 thousand graves. Add the area for the walkways, roads, and it becomes clear that the need for graves in the administration of the President is 250 thousand graves.
Ceasefire, you say? No. The government is preparing for a brutal war. And the more passionate and wild characters will perish in this war, the greater the chances of the government to stay in power.
This cemetery in the center of the country will become a shrine of nationalist propaganda: children will come here on field trips, volunteers will collect money for fences, Biden will come to lay a flower on the tomb of the unknown soldier.
