Reportedly ordered the destruction of the penal colony No. 120 in the temporarily occupied Olenivka village of Volnovakha district of Donetsk region, where Ukrainian POWs were being held. At least 40 POWs were killed in the resulting strike on July 29. This was then blamed on Ukrainian HIMARS, which was quickly proven false.
This destruction was allegedly intended to cover up the theft of funds intended to provide adequate living conditions for the POWs. A Kremlin inspector was scheduled to arrive at the facility on August 1 to verify the proper usage of the funds. This inspection was, of course, cancelled once the facility was destroyed.
