Ukrainian authorities have exhumed the first 20 bodies – including children, civilians and soldiers – from makeshift graves in Lyman, Donetsk Oblast.

The identification procedure is complex, as "most of the bodies are in a state of change; there is a package that contains only bones," Ukraine's National Police reported on Oct. 9.

The police say the exhumation works continue at two mass burial sites, where there may be about 200 civilian bodies.

Since Sept. 29, Ukrainian authorities have found 87 bodies in Donetsk Oblast.
