CrimeaSOS: since 2014, all political prisoners in the territories occupied by russia have been subjected to torture17 / 05 / 2023
Since 2014, all victims of politically motivated persecution in the territories temporarily occupied by russia have been subjected to torture. This is what the Head of the Board of CrimeaSOS Oleksii Tilnenko said in the comment to “Crimea.Realii“.
“Many of our political prisoners, who were in the occupied territory of Crimea and continue to be there, said that they were tortured immediately after detention and at the time of transportation, after arriving at the pre-trial detention centre and later. Such an attitude, let’s say directly — torture, continued both in places of detention, and until the moment of sentencing, and after”, — said Oleksii Tilnenko.
We should remind you that the practice of torture has been used since the occupation of the Crimean peninsula, as well as the territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. After the start of the full-scale invasion, the invaders spread it to the newly occupied southern regions of Ukraine.
