"We are taking three bodies to the forensics bureau in Dnipro. They will undergo identification by comrades. All the three received fatal mine-blast injuries. Although they all have documents - passports and military cards - we won't reveal their names until identification is complete," he stressed.
On Jan. 8, three Ukrainian marines disappeared in the vicinity of Mariupol while on a combat mission near the demarcation line. They are officially listed as missing.
