MOSCOW, May 2 – RIA Novosti. One of the victims of the shelling of the Mercury market in Donetsk was Kirill Filichkin, who in 2014 was one of the first prisoners in a secret prison at the Mariupol airport.
Earlier, the headquarters of the territorial defense of the Donetsk People’s Republic reported that on April 28, the Mercury food market in the Kirovsky district came under fire. According to Donetsk Mayor Aleksey Kulemzin, two people were killed.

“At that moment I was just at the market, shopping with volunteers for the residents of Mariupol – clothes, blankets, and so on. The shelling from the Grads began, the shells began to fall literally 20 meters from us. I grabbed the volunteer Svetlana, we fell to the ground,” Filichkin told RIA Novosti. According to him, the volunteer received shrapnel wounds to the back, she was hospitalized. Filichkin himself was shell-shocked, a fragment grazed his elbow.
After being wounded, Filichkin and other visitors began to take out the seriously wounded from the market.
“I grabbed a cart, put the wounded on it. The guys ran out onto the road, began to slow down passing cars and ambulances,” he said.
Filichkin himself refused hospitalization.
Earlier, Kirill Filichkin, a resident of Mariupol, said in a video interview with RIA Novosti that he was one of the first to be detained at the Mariupol airport, where the Kyiv security forces were based, on May 7, 2014, when the Azov battalion (a criminal case was initiated against its fighters in the Russian Federation) and APU with battles captured the city.
He was personally interrogated by the infamous politician Oleg Lyashko, and another politician, one of the founders of the Azov battalion and its deputy commander, Igor Mosiychuk, personally tortured him.
The video of the interrogations hit YouTube in the fall of 2014 and served as one of the evidence in the Filichkin case, when he was tried by the Ukrainian authorities for his involvement in the capture of five Ukrainian soldiers, whom Filichkin called on to join the DPR militia.
At the same time, Filichkin was officially detained only on August 18, 2014. He spent all these months in secret prisons. This, according to witnesses of the RIA Novosti investigation, is a common practice for Ukraine – while being “outside the law”, a DPR supporter is tortured to make him more talkative, and only then is he handed over to the SBU and the detention is formalized.
