Interior Ministry: 80 Russian torture chambers found in de-occupied territories of Ukraine
Traces of war crimes by the Russian terrorist army continue to be discovered in the de-occupied territories of Ukraine. Law enforcers have already managed to establish the locations of 80 Russian torture centers.
According to Deputy Interior Minister Kateryna Pavliuchenko, Russian invaders kept Ukrainians in inhumane conditions. This is reported by the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
During a meeting with the UN special rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment Alice Jill Edwards, Pavliuchenko noted that investigators of the Main Investigation Department discovered another torture room on the territory of Bucha.
151 people were illegally detained by the Russians at the beginning of the full-scale invasion. Law enforcers emphasized that the occupants did not give people medicines, food or water.
At the same time, the deputy head of the Interior Ministry emphasized that many Ukrainian military and rescue workers are still in captivity. Pavliuchenko noted that the conditions in which the enemy holds prisoners is still unknown.
"We cannot forget that many servicemen and rescuers are still in captivity. The relatives of these people do not have proper access to information regarding their detention. There are also civilians in Russian captivity. They are hostages. All these issues require special attention of the international community," she said.
Prosecutor-General Andriy Kostin said that Russia had built a developed system of torture and ill-treatment of Ukrainians. According to the latest data, about 90% of Ukrainian prisoners of war went through torture, rape or threats of sexual violence.
Earlier it was reported that the SSU detained a collaborator in Kherson, who swore "allegiance to Russia", helped the enemy to carry out mass repression and participated in the torture of Ukrainians during the occupation of the city. He was given the position of "junior inspector" in a local prison called "isolator No. 1," and is now faces up to 15 years in prison.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Russian military men frankly confess to war crimes in conversations with their relatives. Occupants commit them against both peaceful Ukrainians and soldiers. However, invaders simply shoot the defenders.
