Співробітники Служби безпеки України спільно з військовими затримали на Луганщині бойовика терористичної організації «ЛНР», якого підозрюють у тортурах над полоненими українськими військовими.

Бойовика в камуфляжній формі з ручним кулеметом Калашникова і трьома спорядженими магазинами до нього затримали в так званій «сірій зоні» поблизу села Сокольники Новоайдарського району. За словами затриманого, йому доручили обстріляти блокпост українських військових.

Установлено, що бойовик є уродженцем Лисичанська і почав свою кар’єру в терористичному батальйоні «Привид» ще у 2014 році, неодноразово брав участь у бойових зіткненнях із силами АТО.

У вересні 2017 року скеровано до суду обвинувальний акт у вчиненні кримінального правопорушення, передбаченого ч. 1 ст. 258-3 Кримінального кодексу України.

У червні 2017 р. співробітниками Управління СБУ в Одеській області затриманий чоловік, який намагався незаконно, за підробленими документами громадянина України, виїхати до Республіки Молдова.

Під час розслідування з’ясовано, що громадянин Російської Федерації Валерій Гратов у 2014 р. увійшов до керівного складу терористичних організацій «ЛНР» та «ДНР» і до червня 2017 р. приймав активну участь у бойових діях проти українських військових. Також слідство володіє інформацією, що вказаний іноземець особисто катував військовополонених. Слід зазначити, що підозрюваний мав значний досвід ведення бойових у Республіці Молдова та Грузії.



Наприкінці листопада 2017 р. прокуратура Одеської області направила до суду обвинувальний акт у кримінальному провадженні щодо підозрюваного в участі у терористичній організації (ч. 1 ст. 258-3 Кримінального кодексу України).

05.09.2014 р. підрозділ 24 бригади територіальної оборони (БТрО) «Айдар» згідно з Мінськими домовленостями залишив свої позиції поблизу селища Металіст Луганської області та двома автомобілями пробирався в Щастя. Однак військовослужбовці потрапили в засідку: їх розстріляли бойовики ДШРГ «Русич».

Одного з українських бійців терористи захопили живим. Чоловіку розпороли живіт – і це не спричинило миттєву смерть. На фото й відео зафіксували, що військовослужбовця вбили пострілом у голову.

Керівником і виконавцем тортур та вбивства називають командира ДШРГ «Русич» Мильчакова («Серб»). До злочину також причетний Полехін Павло Володимирович («Угольок») з Луганщини.

У СБУ зняли фільм про знищення групи диверсантів ДШРГ «Русич».

EVIDENCE OF UKRAINIAN CITIZENS

WHO WERE HELD CAPTIVE BY RUSSIAN

TERRORIST GROUPS ON THE ORDLO territories,

ON THE MILITARY AGGRESSION

OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION AGAINST UKRAINE,

INHUMAN DETENTION CONDITIONS,

PHYSICAL ABUSE, TORTURE AND

MORAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL HUMILIATION

Kherson Oblast

1. Myhailo P. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 5 days)

“…I was taken captive near Zhovtneve settlement in Luhansk Oblast, when we were attacked by the Russian unit called Donskiie Kazaki. I was held in Luhansk city in a lodgment, which was called a “zoo” by the members of illegal armed formations. All the captives (about 100 people) were interrogated with video fixation and the questions were quite provocative: “Why did you come to kill our children?”, “Who’s called you here?”, focusing attention on the statements that “all Ukrainian servicemen are punishers”, “Donbas will never be Ukrainian”, “the Russian Federation will conquer the whole Ukrainian territory soon”. The interrogations were shot by a cameraman, dressed in the military form of the RF Armed forces; I saw this video in the Russian news after my release from the captivity…”



Lviv Oblast

2. Ihor H. (volunteer, was held captive for 59 days)


35


“…Early in January, 2015, I and my friend Oleh P. were delivering parcels from volunteers to the Ukrainian servicemen. The servicemen were dislocated in Krymske village, Luhansk oblast. On the way back our car was stopped by three armed men. Finding out that we were Ukrainian volunteers the gunmen pushed us into the luggage compartment of the car and then took us to Alchevsk city. There at the former Department of Interior Ministry State Inspection of Ukraine, that had been seized by the Russian terrorists, the first interrogation was held. In the course of that interrogation eight gunmen came into the room and started beating us without any warning (among them there were persons call named Kaskad, Shmel, Yakut and Ashhabad). It had been lasting for about an hour. Then another terrorist came into the room, he got out a gun and shot at me once and twice at Oleh. In spite of our being wounded he started beating us with a chair. We faced abuses almost every day. We were beaten in the most ruthless way after we had been brought to the cellar of some hostel, where pro-Russian terrorists stayed. The tortures lasted all night long there. Later on we were taken to the so-called “headquarters of Mozgovyi detachment”; I was held there till the end of captivity. The Ukrainian citizens were tortured by persons call named Sybir – the RF citizen from Kaluga oblast (the head of some Russian terrorist subversive-rreconnaissance group), Borets, a gunman whose real name was Leonid (one of the heads of Mozgoviy guard service) and his deputy Kostiantyn call-named Stylet…”

3. Andriy P. (member of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine, was held captive for 3 days)

“…I and my daughter were going back home by car. Suddenly we were blocked by VAZ 21099; two men came out of it. As we found out later they were representatives of the illegal armed formation Oplot: Andriy P. (call name Taison) and Roman H. – both residents of Krasnyi Luch. Taison pointed a pistol TT at my daughter and ordered me to carry out his orders threatening to kill my daughter in case of my disobedience. He got into my car, sat on the back seat, pointed his gun at my head and pushed my daughter out of the car. I was brought to the building of the fiscal police in Krasnyi Luch that had been occupied by terrorists. There were 10-15 armed men in the building dressed in the RF AF military uniform. There I was interrogated for the first time. The interrogation was conducted by Serhiy N. (nickname Mlyn, Mlynchik), who had been convicted for robbery. He called himself “the head of counterintelligence of the Great Don Army. There was also Ivan I., an ex-member of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Ukraine – “military commandant of Krasnyi Luch”. These men beat me violently (they kicked and punched me, beat with rubber cues) and also tortured me by the electric current. Oleksandr P., a resident of Krasnyi Luch, local drug dealer, was also present there at that time. He was pointing his Kalashnikov gun at me. After tortures I lost my consciousness and when I came to my senses, the abovementioned persons proposed me to agree in a written form to join the Great Don Army. In case of my refusal they threatened me by shooting; to exert psychological pressure they were shooting the gun above my head. As I had refused to do so, the tortures went on (and lasted for a few hours). The terrorists demanded a ransom for my release. After my family had paid it, we left the temporarily occupied territory. I know that the men, mentioned above, were engaged in kidnapping, a number of armed robberies, manslaughters and rapes on the territory of Luhansk Oblast…”



Volyn Oblast

4. Viktor M. (a serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 11 days)

“…At the beginning of January my unit was sent to protect Donetsk airport. It was the so called “last peaceful rotation”, as after our rotation the Ukrainian soldiers were to come with fight. At different times the airport terminal was protected by 40-65 soldiers. From January 16, 2015 the militants and the Russian servicemen started bombing the new terminal of Donetsk airport using T-90 tanks T-90, and then followed the assault. Among the militants there were a lot of hirelings from the Russian North Caucasus, especially of Chechen nationality. It could be easily noticed by their manner of working or their language, when they tried to speak with the Ukrainian soldiers. They belonged to Vostok terrorist battalion. We successfully blocked the Russian terrorist attacks, but at the second half of the 19th January the first powerful explosion in the terminal occurred. The militants blasted the floor in the northern hall of the building; as a result I was blocked, and my upper and lower limbs and of my head were injured. I had been blocked for 2 days, periodically losing my consciousness. On January 21 Ukrainian soldiers, who stayed alive (everybody was injured), were taken captive by militants. The Chechen men started abusing, beating us and threatened to execute us by shooting. After that the Ukrainian soldiers, who had been taken captive, were brought to Donetsk. Despite the injuries they had got, they were taken to one of the central squares, knelt in front of the local residents. Most of Ukrainian soldiers were brought to the basement of ex-SSU Department in Donetsk Oblast; it was the militants’ torture chamber. As for me, being seriously injured I was hospitalized; later on I was exchanged for one of the terrorist artillery spotters of the so called DPR…”



Zaporizhia Oblast

5. Mykhailo Sh. (serviceman of the National Guard of Ukraine, was held captive for 55 days)

“…In August, 29, 2014 our unit was ordered to withdraw from Ilovaisk town and to come to Chervonosilske village. On the way there our column was attacked by the Russian tanks; they fired antitank missiles, large caliber machineguns and small arms. Despite serious losses we broke through the encirclement, with two tanks and two RF AF ACVs (Airborne combat vehicle), being disarmed, we managed to capture four servicemen of the RF Airborne Forces. Alongside Chervonosilske village we organized all-round defense and during two days we were fighting against Russian paratroopers. It was clear that as we had run out of ammunition, we couldn’t break through the encirclement. Through the mediation of the MPs, Russian officers offered us to ground our arms and exchange Russian hostages for Ukrainian wounded men (whose number was really big). Being in rather a difficult situation, we had to agree with their terms having previously disarmed ourselves. Russians loaded all our wounded comrades on the transport and then handed them over to the Ukrainian side. The rest of Ukrainian combatants (108 persons) were handed over to the combatants of the so-called DPR, who carried us out to Donetsk city, in particular, to the bombproof shelter of ex-SSU Department in Donetsk Oblast (that had been occupied by terrorists). At once they started tortures and excruciations, they beat so much that hostages’ backs were black with hemorrhages. They beat every day, looked for snipers, some were tortured to death. We slept in the basement on the floor (we put under some parts of furniture there), the others slept on chairs – we had been living under such conditions for two months. We were always under the threat to be executed − they imitated it shooting above our heads. They fed us like animals – 1 bucket of porridge and 1 loaf of bread for all hostages. We were forced to dismantle ruined buildings and to clean streets. While being taken off to do forced labor we always met Russian servicemen (Russian uniform, special Russian arms – AK-101 machinegun with which Ukrainian Armed Forces had never been armed with, the Russian military equipment carrying their flags). Personally I heard conversation of two Russian militants’, from which I understood that “they had come from the North Caucasus to help local separatists…”



Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast

6. Petro Sh. (serviceman of the Interior Ministry, was held in captive for 23 days)

“…In August, 2014 my battalion was redeployed to the permanent duty place in Ilovaisk, Donetsk region. During 10 days we were carrying out an operation on clearing the territory from terrorists and having duty at the check points. After the 20th by the commanders’ order our unit tried to withdraw from Ilovaisk through the so called “green corridor” which had been supposed to be given by the servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for withdrawing the Ukrainian forces but suddenly the RF AF representatives began to fire the heavy artillery from both sides of the road. My car was destroyed by the enemy’s shooting and I was wounded. Then the airborne forces of the RF AF supported by Russian tanks and APC began the attack. A lot of us were killed, some Ukrainian soldiers were captured by Russians but I and several servicemen managed to hide in the wood line. In the morning next day we found the road and stopped some civilian’s car there. The driver had agreed to pick us up to the hospital in Starobeshevo but soon the car was stopped by DPR militants. They beat me and my comrades severely, took away our documents, weapons and ammunition, money and values and drove us to some unknown location. At one check point they locked us in the cellar of some former restaurant building. The room was near 8m² in size. There weren’t any conditions for overnight. We were sitting on the concrete floor with our hands tied. We were forbidden to ease ourselves, eat and drink. Nearly all the time (3 days) I was beaten, tortured and abused. When I fainted the militants poured water on me and the tortures went on. Then I was brought to Donetsk. There I was held in the former SSU archive building in Donetsk region where the terrorists’ prison was located. When in captivity I was repeatedly interrogated, moreover “the interrogator of DPR” always repeated that would shoot me down on any appropriate occasion. While interrogating they were constantly beating me, kicked and punched me with their hands, legs, cues. They stepped on my wounded leg so I felt an unbearable pain. Furthermore all the time when in captivity I didn’t get any medical aid…”



7. Stanislav S. (serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 16 days)

“…Since December, 23, 2014 I had been performing a combat mission in Donetsk airport. Almost every day Russian terrorists tried to capture the airport but because of our resistance they suffered significant losses. Some time later they began to shell the airport terminals from heavy artillery and tanks. I’d like to mention that Russian regular servicemen including the ones from the Russian Federal Security unit called “Vympel” took part in combats. At the end of January, 2015, after one more massive artillery shelling I was taken captive was seriously injured and lost consciousness. Taking into account my bad condition the militants agreed to exchange me for their comrade, who stayed in captivity of the Armed Forces of Ukraine…”



8. Mykola S. (serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 120 days)

“…Regular servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, namely combatants of Pskov Airborne Troops Division and Ulianovsk Tank Brigade captured me at the moment when the Ukrainian units were leaving Ilovaisk. After a while the Russians handed me over to the militants of the so called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), under the command of Motorola terrorist. During the first month and a half I was held in the basement of ex-SSU Department in Donetsk Oblast, after that I was transported to Ilovaisk. There we were held in the basement of some administrative office. The Russian terrorists regularly put physical and psychological pressure upon me and other captives; they clubbed our limbs with rubber batons, tortured us and threatened us by execution…”



9. Mykhailo Ya. (serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 91 days)

“…At the end of November, 2014, I went on a mission in a military lorry. We stopped in Novotoshkivske village in Luhansk Oblast; I went out of the car to purchase some products in a local shop. Unexpectedly someone behind me hit my head and I lost my consciousness. I came round in Luhansk in some basement, where I was held captive all the time. I felt the worst during the first weeks. At that time I was compelled to do different physical exercises (to jump, push, squat etc.) without a rest. When I stopped doing it, the militants of so-called LPR came into the room and hit me. The militants from the North Caucasus and Russia took part in interrogations and behaved extremely brutally…”



Kharkiv Oblast

10. Dmytro S. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 43 days)

“…At the beginning of July, 2014, I was detained by LPR illegal armed formation representatives when I was on leave in Lysychansk; then I was brought to the cellar of the public prosecutor’s office that had already been seized by Russian terrorists. I was interrogated by the chief of the artillery militant unit call named Poltinnik in the company of some armed people. The interrogation didn’t last long, so they didn’t manage to get any useful information from me. After that a man in a mask started kicking me and threatened me with his gun. Poltinnik ordered everyone to leave the building. So he stayed there with me and one man in a mask. He took out his gun and started shooting above my head, near my ears, shoulders and legs. The bullet caught my shoulder. Man in mask asked him not to hurt me. He said: “He’d better dig out trenches” (as it was punishment of the locals held in the cellar by the militants for having violated the curfew or for some minor offences). During some days a drunken separatist tried to kill me shooting his gun at my door. However the door was made of iron and that’s why I was saved. Besides that the militant wasn’t allowed to come down into the cellar where the captives were held…”



11. Volodymyr L. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 16 days)

“…While our company was advancing to conduct night operation, it fell under shelling. They fired mortars, tanks, artillery systems of volley fire. Many units of our military equipment were destroyed within half an hour. I was lucky to get out of that hell and to take my comrades with me. Our combat car was broken down so it couldn’t be used any more. We went further on foot. Having approached some settlement we decided to wait till morning to see where we were and what we should do next. We decided in the morning that I would to go on to make reconnaissance. Having come into the town I understood it was Komsomolsk. Local citizens told me that the RF AF armed and equipped combat units had come there 3 days before. Having cleared that out I made up my mind to go back, though I noticed two men following me all the time. Having understood that I was spied on I decided not to risk coming back to my guys. I got into the fixed-run taxi. While driving the driver called someone to say there were some vacant seats, though in reality the taxi was full. In a few minutes some armed strangers stopped the taxi and took all the men out. The let everyone go except me. They started beating me at once; they wanted me to give them information concerning our chiefs and Ukrainian forces dislocation. I was taken to Donbas to the former SSU Department building. There were more than a hundred of Ukrainian captives inside. We were beaten and abused all the time. They threatened to cut me into pieces and to send them to my parents; they called me a murderer and a chastiser. While interrogating they tried to make me take the DPR side if I wanted to be alive. When I refused they put me against the wall and were beating me till I lost consciousness. I didn’t get enough food, just half a cup of porridge per day. We were taken to the toilet in turns; and there we could drink some water at least. They threw the Ukrainian flag onto the floor and made us pace on it. If we refused to do that they started beating us again. The DPR militants were always affected by drugs and alcohol. They threatened us all the time. I didn’t expect to be alive afterwards. When I found myself on the list for the exchange I couldn’t even believe that…”



12. Ihor T. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 43 days)

“…Our military column was attacked during the withdrawal from Illovaisk city. One farmer hid me in his house in Novoozerivka village, but I was arrested by the RF AF servicemen after the local citizens had denounced me. Those servicemen were real military professionals. They were not “Putin’s collective farmers or miners”, but professional Russian servicemen. They brought me to the yard where I was beaten and humiliated. They hit my kidneys and ribs. Then some Russian officer with a call-name Lenin approached. He started to question me, inquiring where I was from. Searching the farmer’s house they found my ammunition. My weapon proved the fact that I was a sniper. They tied my hands immediately and started beating me again. They asked me where my second number, my machine-gunner was. The Russian serviceman call-named Mongol was the most atrocious person. The militants took away my phone and started to call my acquaintances and intimidated them saying that they had already killed me. They also tortured a farmer, although the locals were interceding for him. They threatened him that for sheltering an “ukrop” (that was me) they would confiscate all his motor vehicles. Then I and the farmer were thrown into the car. There were some other captives, three contract servicemen and an officer. We all were taken too the “DPR Ministry of National Defense” and the tortures continued …”



Mykolaiiv Oblast

13. Oleksandr Sh. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 22 days)

“…Our check-point in Bahmut road area was encircled by pro-Russian combatants. After shelling and a long-lasting battle some of my comrades and me were captured. At once they started beating us, paying no attention to the fact that I was scalded because my combat vehicle had been shelled. They knocked my teeth out and broke 6 ribs of mine. Harassment and abuse were common things during the whole period of my being in captivity…”



Donetsk Oblast

14. Valeriia O. (a civilian, was held captive for 225 days)

“…I was taken captive together with my husband in Khartsyzk town by the militants who called themselves “Cyberberkut warriors”. We were held in the former regional police department building ( not far from the local railway station) for three days, then the militants from the so-called “Vostok” terrorist unit brought me and my husband to the torture chamber of the “DPR ministry of state security” situated in the Regional SSU Department in Donetsk oblast, that had been captured by militants. I was interrogated several times by means of physical abuse and psychological intimidation; they insisted on me sharing the information concerning the locals who “treated DPR disloyally”. The militants call named Shakhtar (Oleg in reality) and Kyiv (Andrii in reality) were responsible for interrogations and gave orders. I was held in captivity together with other local citizens of Donbas: Vasyl S. and Serhii L. (for pro-Ukrainian propaganda in social networks), Sophia V., Victoria D., Oleksandr T. (for voluntary assisting Ukrainian servicemen), Andrii G. (for making photos of pro-Russian meeting in Khartsyzk). The men and women, who had been captured by terrorists, were detained together being not provided with any sanitary conditions, food or water…”



Poltava Oblast

15. Valerii B. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 47 days)

“…When I arrived at Ilovaisk as a member of my army unit in August 2014, the military conflict with pro-Russian terrorists had already been well underway. On August, 29, 2014 at around 10 a.m. our unit was about to leave Ilovaisk region along the “green corridor”. While we were moving forward in a file towards Starobesheve, we came under cross fire from combat units of the Armed Forces of Russia. At that moment I was in a military truck, which was thrown over by a blast wave, caused by the explosion. As a result, I was wounded in the right leg. Those of us who had survived got to some settlement, where we were hiding for several days. Personally I was hidden by the locals (middle-aged man and woman), who provided me with the first aid. But on September 3, the militants of the so-called DPR called on the house in four cars and drove me away. Hitting me on the head with a butt, they took me to the former investigation isolation ward of Ilovaisk police department. Nearly every night unknown people came to me, they beat me and even tried to suffocate me. Sometimes, they threatened to kill me, shooting next to my ear. Besides, one of the ways of psychological pressure used by the Russian contractors for their own entertainment was to make the captives jump, saying the following words: “The one, who doesn't jump is a moskal …”



16. Iryna B. (volunteer, was held captive for 101 days)

“…At the end of June, 2014 our group of volunteers (Borys M., Volodymyr M., Viktor K. and me) set out to the village of Zelenopillia, Luhansk oblast. On the highway Kharkiv – Dovzhanskyi near the settlement of Rovenky we were detained by the so-called “Russian kazaki” and taken to the territory of the local feed-milling plant, where we were divided: the men were taken to one room and I was taken to the other one. At night I was taken out to the street, where my execution was simulated. The same night I heard the “kazaki” victimizing my friends at the next room. The next morning, they brought me the phone and ordered me to call my relatives in order to inform them of the demands put forward by the terrorists, namely to withdraw Ukrainian troops from the border with the Russian Federation. At the same time, a knife was being held near my throat. After that, we were taken to the so-called Military Prosecutor’s Office of DPR, located in the former local brunch of the Party of Regions in Antratsyd. They began to victimize me, beating me with their hands, legs and a baton. I was beaten on the head for speaking Ukrainian. We were handcuffed and locked to the railings of the car and then we were brought to Horlivka, namely, to the headquarters of one of the leaders of the terrorists with the call-sign “Bes”. There, I and my colleagues were thrown to a basement where there were three corpses and two people who were still alive: Artem H. and Oleh (whose surname I don’t remember). The latter was executed by shooting before our eyes. At night, one by one we were taken for interrogation, during which we underwent torture: toes were pulled with pliers, heads were wrapped with sellotape, knees were hammered, bodies were drilled and eyes were removed with a knife. A few days later I was released, with the terrorists saying that it was “a gift to you from Bes” on the occasion of awarding him the Russian title of Major General...”



17. Serhii S. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 5 days)

“…Since December, 2014 I had been in Debaltseve as a member of my battalion. We were at an outpost and our task was to carry out observation. On February 15, 2015 we were beseiged by Russian terrorists, who were wearing white ribbons on their sleeves (there were more than 100 people). After the battle they captured us and took us to Luhansk. Judging from separatists’ conversations, we were placed somewhere in the zoo. I had been interrogated twice with the use of torture in the presence of journalists from one of the Russian Federation TV channels. It seems to have been “Russia-24” channel. Judging from separatists’ talks, I realized that they were headed by a citizen of the Russian Federation…”



18 Mykhailo T. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 5 days)

“…At the end of January, 2015 I and some other servicemen of our military unit were sent to the forward defense post of “Kopio” (Debaltseve region, Donetsk oblast) with the purpose of reinforcement. Every day Ukrainian positions were under mass bombardments conducted by the terrorists’ detachments, using artillery, tanks and rocket systems. On February 17, 2015, while our defense post was being besieged, the representatives of illegal armed groups were offering us to yield ourselves prisoners, as the adjacent defense posts of the Ukrainian troops had already been captured by them. In spite of this, we continued to hold the line until we ran out of ammunition. In total, about 100 people were captured; all of them were taken to Luhansk. During interrogations, militants used physical coercion and torture. Several times, armed men came into the room and, threatening us defiantly with an assault rifle, said that all of us would be shot. Also, by beating Ukrainian captives, the terrorists forced them into giving interviews to the representatives of the Russian Federation mass media, which witnessed the torture, but didn’t say a single word about it in their reports…”



Zakarpattia Oblast

19. Mykola D. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 21 days)

“…In August, 2014 my military unit received the order to relocate to the area of Dzerkalne village, Amvrosiivka region, Donetsk oblast. In late August, the brigade command received the information that the enemy’s military machinery in the amount of 50 units was on the offensive in our direction. As it turned out later, those were Russian military units bearing the Russian Federation military insignia.

On August 24, 2014 there was a clash with the enemy’s forces. As a result, we were encircled by the Russian military units (the so-called “Ilovaiskyi kotel (pocket)”) and suffered significant losses in military machinery and personnel with more than 100 people killed or wounded.

On August 28, 2014 having received an order from the command to retreat, our group of 20 fighters tried to breach the encirclement, however, we ran into the enemy’s ambush and under the threat of killing, we had to disarm and surrender to Russian militaries. We were searched by regular Russian militaries, who took away all our valuable things and documents. Then we were tied up, loaded into the Ural truck and, as I got to know later, were taken to Snizhne, Donetsk oblast. On our way to the destination point, the truck stopped several times in order to be filled with other captives.

On arriving at Snizhne, the Russians handed us to the representatives of illegal armed groups of the so-called DPR, who placed us in the former police station boxes. At that time the number of captives was already about 500 people. The conditions we had to endure in captivity were terrible. We were sleeping on the floor; the roof was leaking. We were fed twice a day: at 14 and at 23 o’clock.

In captivity we were forced to work hard, were beaten, tortured, in the middle of the night we were taken out to fall into line, then we were counted and threatened to be shot. Interrogations aimed at obtaining information on the deployment of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the area of anti-terrorist operation were conducted. During interrogations captives were tortured; one of them was cut off his right hand where the State coat of arms of Ukraine was tattooed…”



Kyiv Oblast

20. Mykola H. (serviceman of the National Guard of Ukraine, was held captive for 50 days)

“…On September 26, 2014 while transporting a wounded man, I was taken captive near Luhansk airport. I was captured by servicemen of the Armed Forces of Russian Federation, namely by the airborne troops fighters from Pskov. They were commanded by the Russian officer Serdiuk Oleksandr, who was armed with AKM assault rifle and Stechkin automatic pistol. While in captivity, I saw that Russian servicemen were armed with AK-100 assault rifles, new modifications of the Drahunov and Vintorez sniper rifles, they were also provided with military machinery (tanks, infantry fighting vehicles) bearing the numbers of the Russian Federation military units.

Russian servicemen took me to Krasnodon, where I spent a night at the administration building of the local mine, where the military unit of the Airborne forces of the Armed Forces of Russian Federation was deployed. On August 27, 2014, at about 5 p.m., convoyed by Russian military men I was taken to the territory of Russian Federation to a war compound, located 5 km off Rostov-na-Donu. There I was interrogated by two officers of GRU (Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation Armed Forces), who applied electric current to various parts of my body during the interrogation. I stayed at the war compound till the evening of August 08, 2014, when they took me back to the mine in Krasnodon, where I was kept for three more days. Then I was taken to the former pretrial detention centre of Krasnodon region police station.

In total, I was held captive for 50 days. The conditions were terrible. In the premises of Krasnodon region police station, designed for four people, I was held with 13 more hostages. I underwent constant interrogations, at which I was beaten with the butt of a machine gun. Being held captive, I barely ate anything and lost 26 kg in weight. We were fed only in the pretrial detention centre, but the food was so disgusting that nobody could eat it…”



21. Oleh Zh. (civilian, was held captive for 8 days)

“…I was kidnapped just in the street by DPR terrorists in early June 2014. As I got to know it later, the reason for my having been captured was my active participation in Donetsk Euromaidan in January-February, 2014, and personal hostility on behalf of the leader of pro-Russian separatists O. Zaharchenko. He was one of the heads of Donetsk “titushki”, who arranged provocations and beatings of Euromaidan participants at the beginning of 2014 and later, in April-May, he organized pro-Russian rallies in Donetsk city. In the course of events we met each other several times and he threatened me repeatedly. It was Zaharchenko, who caught me together with the former head of Voroshylov city Council I. Pryhodko and with other 4 or 5 gunmen.

All the time I was held in the basement of the SSU Donetsk Department that had been captured by terrorists. There was a concrete floor, several pieces of foam rubber, a small table and a chair. On the foam rubber 4 or 5 captives could sleep simultaneously, although there were 12 people in the room.

We were given almost no food, we could eat something only when we when we were taken to do physical work. We were made to do household work in the inner yard of the former SSU Donetsk Department, to upload goods from “Metro” shopping mall stolen by DPR militants as well as stolen property from the department of the “Ukrsotsbank”, R.Luxemburg street, Donetsk city.

They threatened us by execution in case of our trying to escape. Being in the basement we had our eyes covered with the scotch tape. When I asked the guard to loosen it up as I had a sick eye (I had already got the symptoms of glaucoma and posttraumatic cataract – as the result of my having been beaten by the pro-Russian “titushki” in Donetsk, in February 25, 2014). After a while the militants entered the room and started kicking me cruelly resenting that I had loosened the tape on my eyes without permission. The interrogations were held at night, we had our hands cuffed behind our backs and there were bags on our heads. While interrogating us they were kicking us at our breastbones and tortured us with the eclectic charge for 10-12 times. They threatened to affect my heart by means of the electric charge. We were guarded and questioned by the representatives of the so-called “Russian orthodox army” and terrorists of “Oplot” illegal armed formation. There were a lot of Russians among them who didn’t hide that fact. I remember a militant call named Hottab (he had distinctive Russian features, always carried a dagger and a gun), Ivan Ivanovych (called himself as a reserve colonel from Dnipropetrovsk), Meksykanets (one of the commandants in the torture chamber), Ohotnyk…”


22. Roman Zh. (serviceman of State Special Comms of Ukraine, was held captive for 10 days)

“…On September 2014 after getting an order about redeployment of out unit to Mariupol, I left Donetsk, but was detained at the terrorists’ checkpoint at Shyrokyi district. I and other 5 people were taken out of the bus, our hands were tied together, they put bags on our heads; before it they had wrapped our eyes with the Scotch tape and drove us out to the territory of a motor depot. There they locked me and other captives in one of five garages. Judging by the sounds heard from behind the wall I understood there were other captives in the garages nearby, both men and women.

I had been held in the garage for 10 days, I was fed one time a day with rotten boiled potatoes. There also was Konstiantyn P. and another captive, who didn’t come back after the interrogation. At regular intervals we were interrogated in the same way: three terrorists in masks came into the room, they had guns, one of them asked questions, another one kicked and punched our heads and breasts, and the third one put a choker and began strangling us.


23. Volodymyr H. (serviceman of the Ministry of Interior was held captive for 5 days)

“…At the end of May, 2014 I was captured by the members of the illegally armed formation of DPR when trying to release my friend who had been captured by terrorists. I can name persons who detained and interrogated captives applying tortures. They were Leonid Harchenko (as I know he held the post of one of the commanders of the so-called “Department of counterintelligence of DPR Ministry of State Security”), Konstiantyn Voronchenko, call-named Yaponets (the officer courier and the authorized person of the Russian terrorist Girkin-Strelkov), Vadym Komisarov, the former serviceman of the Ministry of Interior of Ukraine (personally conducted the interrogations). Afore-named persons were armed with handguns and machineguns; they wore military uniform of Russian origin without any insignia.

I was held in the cellar of Kostiantynivka Local Administrative Department which had been occupied by militants. I experienced psychological pressure and intimidation, systematic threats of execution (during the interrogations they put a polyethylene bag on my head and imitated the shot). In addition they tried to get the information about my colleagues, servicemen of the Chief Department of the Ministry of Interior of Ukraine in Donetsk region and information unfamiliar for me concerning activities of Ukrainian intelligence departments on the territory of Konstiantynivka…”


24. Volodumyr V. (serviceman the of Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 11 days)

“…After my being captured by the militants of the so-called DPR I was brought to the building of Konstiantynivka city council where they locked me in a cellar. I had been held there for 11 days. During that period they fed me three times, kicked and punched me, beat with butts and iron bars…”



25. Maksym Ye. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 26 days)

“…I was taken prisoner when our troops were leaving Ilovaisk. I and my comrades were captured by the RF Armed forces servicemen. They were regular troops of Russia equipped with tanks, APC, IFV and artillery in large amount. The Russians put us into military trucks with awning and early in the morning took us away to the Russian territory. I in person saw through the crack the highway with moving cars that had Russian license plates and Russian police cars. And all road signs were in Russian. The same evening they put us back into Ukraine and moved into town of Snizhne in Donetsk oblast that was under the control of the terrorists of the pretended DPR.

For 26 days I was kept in the local police office garage where the headquarters of the militants was situated as well. The prisoners were under constant physical and moral pressure. They beat us severely, humiliated us in all possible ways, cursed us using offensive language and made us starve. They chained one of the captives in the street and forbade everyone to feed him, so he was starved to death in front of us…”


26. Serhii Z. (Interior Ministry of Ukraine officer, was held captive for 19 days)

“…I was captured by the terrorists of the so-called DPR fraudulently: my former colleague rang me up (as we found out later he was one of the most active militants) and told me that the representatives of the pretended People’s self-defense body of DPR were willing to discuss the possible discharge of my subordinates being held as hostages.

I came at the appointed place but was immediately tied up and thrown into the basement where they began interrogation while beating and intimidating me. They forced me to admit to the crimes I did not commit, they demanded to give them money and car keys (later on my wife told me that they had made her by means of threatening with murder legalize the takeover of our car to one of the DPR militants). Budakov, the local resident who had been formerly convicted of criminal offence and two other persons in masks interrogated and humiliated me. When I refused to fulfill their demands, one of the militants fired the gun above my head and then shot in my right leg knee.

Despite my wound I was taken to Kramatorsk prosecutor’s office basement which had been seized by the terrorists before and only the next day I got medical aid (they dressed my leg and gave me an injection of anesthetic). With every coming day my condition was getting worse, my leg swelled, I had no feeling in it, but they never gave me any professional medical aid, it was amounted to nothing more than injections. The militants regularly visited me in the basement and carried on beating me. I confused the days and lost hope that one day I would leave this basement safe and sound. But my wife ransomed me; money was gathered by all my relatives and friends in the amount of $40 thousand. One night they blindfolded me, brought out of the basement and took out of town and handed me over to my wife on condition that our family should leave immediately the territory of DPR which was under the militants’ control...”



27. Serhii L.(a civilian, was held captive for 123 days)

“…I worked in the taxi service and in August 20, 2014, one of Luhansk city residents gave me the order to take his family out of ATO zone. When I passed Zorinsk settlement I was stopped at the check-point by the DPR militants. After a short talk they accused me of spying for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and working for “ukry”. After that they beat me severely and took to the terrorists’ base. There they carried out the interrogation and forced me to confess that I was carrying out the spying mission. I tried to explain that I worked as a taxi driver that was easy to check, but they carried on beating. Some time later I was moved into other place situated in the forest where they tied me to the tree and beat severely. I was hanging on the tree the whole day; I saw the barn where they held some other captives. During four months they were moving me to different places, but everywhere they beat me and threatened to shoot and kill. They broke my ribs and some fingers. Now and then I fainted, but it didn’t stop the torturers. The last place where I was imprisoned was the basement of ex-SSU Department in Donetsk oblast that had been turned by the militants into a death mill…”



Volyn Oblast

28-32. Volodymyr P., Serhii V., Hennadii K. and Vadym S. (servicemen of the Armed forces of Ukraine, were held captive for 20 days), Taras Ya. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 38 days)

“…We were taken prisoners at the end of August, 2014, near Dzerkalne settlement of Donetsk oblast. Our unit was encircled by Pskov airborne division of the RF Armed forces. We spent almost all stock of our ammunition in the battle and were taken captives by the Russians. They searched each Ukrainian soldier, confiscated arms, personal belongings, telephones and money. They beat severely those who answered their questions in Ukrainian. Next day they handed us over to the representatives of the illegal armed formations of the pretended DPR, among them there was a lot of Russian citizens (specific accent, ignorance as for the geographic map of Donbas, the emblem of Russian flag on their uniforms; while communicating they mentioned their relatives in Russia). We were held on the territory of Snizhne former police station in Donetsk oblast, in the garage boxes, 40-50 persons in each box. We had our meal 1-2 times a day. It consisted of the remnants of the militants’ meal (one mess-tin for two captives). Sanitary conditions were insufficient and awful. We slept on the floor in turn as there was no enough room for all. We washed our faces, drank water and washed dishes in and from the same barrel placed in the street. The Chechen militants liked to fix this process on their mobile phones. And what’s more they intently threw mud into the water beforehand.

They didn’t beat the captives regularly; it was mostly performed for fun for our guards shift. But psychological torturing took place regularly: non-stop abusive language. Fascists, Bandera-men, invaders were the most polite names they called us...”


33. Serhii F. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 377 days)

“…I was taken prisoner in Donetsk oblast at the end of August, 2014. We tried to break out of encirclement while fighting, but were captured by 331 RF Armed forces Kostroma airborne division servicemen. In captivity I partly was held in a basement which had neither windows nor ventilation; there was no heating. I slept on the floor on the old clothes. I was pestered with lice. The food given was awful. They fed me 1-2 times a day with soup cooked of rotten vegetables. I had not seen the day light for several months. Regularly I was subjected to physical mutilation because I was the Ukrainian officer. They kicked and punched me, and once I had my head broken. There were episodes when they made me kneel down and shot the machinegun above my head…”



34. Stepan P. (serviceman of the Armed forces of Ukraine, was held captive for 8 days)

“…I was held in captivity on the territory of the former military unit seized by the DPR militants, in the room where they used to keep small arms, to be more precise. There were all in all 8 persons, we were sitting on the floor in turns as there was not enough space. So we slept in sitting positions. They urged us to join the terrorists ranks, threatened with execution. Once they made me kneel down and asked me if I was ready to give my life for my Ukraine. They fired a burst above my head...”



35-37. Andrii V., Pavlo Ch., Valentyn K. (servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, were held captive for 123 days)

“…After we had been captured by the paratroopers of the Russian Federation Armed Forces (Pskov division), the officers were separated from the soldiers and taken to Donetsk by Russian military vehicles. We were kept in the former archive of the Donetsk Office building of the SSU which the terrorists turned into prison. At the beginning of our captivity we were interrogated almost every day; the terrorists tried to persuade us to join them promising high salary and Russian Federation citizenship awarded after combat operations are complete. Then they just victimized us, beat us repeatedly, hit us in the heads with gun-butts. Sometimes the guards just chose some captives and forced them to do knee bends and push-ups while kicking them and laughing…”



38-39. Maksym P., Andrii M. (servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, were held captive for 21 days)

“…The captives were continuously threatened to be executed; once the LPR combatants took about 50 captives out at night, put them against the wall and simulated execution by firing squad (they pointed the arms at us and fired blank)…”



Donetsk Oblast

40. Ihor N. (serviceman of the National Guard of Ukraine, was held captive for 181 days)

“…I was captured on August, 31, 2014 near Krasnoselske village after Ukrainian troops and volunteers had withdrawn from Ilovaisk. We were encircled by the paratroopers of Ulianovsk division of the RF Armed Forces; later I personally spoke to one of them, he was a serving officer – senior lieutenant with call-name Lisa (Fox). We had been kept in the field for two days, being deprived of water and food; then we were taken to the former Office building of the SSU in Donetsk Oblast by Russian military vehicles KAMAZ (two vehicles carrying approximately 20 persons each) and a bus (10 persons on board) and transferred to the combatants of “Sparta” illegal armed group (Motorola’s).

We were kept in the basement for 2 months and then we were transported to Ilovaisk. The food was very bad; I lost almost 20 kilograms in captivity. The hostages were victimized both physically and psychologically, we were beaten, humiliated, threatened to be executed. The officers of the Russian military intelligence took part in the interrogations, but they behaved correctly. The combatants of the so-called DPR were much crueler, they tortured the hostages.

They promised to let us free as soon as we agree to give interview to Russian media telling about the crimes of “Kyiv hunta” or join the DPR illegal armed groups. Then there was an offer to let me free for 30 000 US dollars, after two months the sum was 10 000 $. But I refused…”



41. Volodymyr K. (Emergency Service of Ukraine officer, was held captive for 11 days)

“…I was detained together with my brother by three unknown combatants of the so-called DPR who were dressed in Russian-like uniform and armed with TT handguns and Kalashnikov assault rifles. They knew where I and my family lived so my arrest was not accidental.

We were taken (on foot) to “Tsarska Okhota” hotel complex (on the bypass road to Donetsk), where there combatants had their headquarters. There we were interrogated for the first time; they asked us why we didn’t support the terrorists and whether we have relatives who are servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine or members of “Pravyi Sector”. Then we were taken, with our hands tied, to “Butivka” coal mine (suburbs of Sartana), and put to deep trenches opposite the mine (100 meters). There we were transferred to other members of DPR, one of them was in Crimea (there were 15 of them altogether); we were interrogated again in the forest and asked if we had helped the Armed Forces of Ukraine servicemen. They beat us with gun-butts, made shots close to the ear or knee, cut with a knife; I had my nose broken. The interrogation and torture had been lasting for 3 hours, after that I and my brother was taken in a car boot to the building of Donetsk Law Department. I recovered consciousness in the basement, attached to the radiator with adhesive tape. In our basemen cell there were 16 hostages and 30-40 more in other cells…”


42. Serhii T. (Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine officer, was held captive for 6 days)

“…At the beginning of July, 2014, I was returning to Donetsk to continue my service after vacation. At the railway station I was detained by persons in uniform with insignias of the illegal armed group “Vostok” belonging to the so-called DPR. After they found out my identity card proving that I was Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine officer, I was beaten by those people and taken by force to a military base somewhere close Donetsk pasta factory.

I was kept in the basement all the time, where there were no any sanitation at all (we eased ourselves into a bin); there was no any furniture to have a rest either. While I was in custody I was not provided with any medical aid though I need it badly, as I was beaten and tortured every day. They punched and kicked us, as well as hit with gun-butts. They constantly threatened to execute and torture us, made shots close to the head or body, and starved us.

As a result, after being cruelly tortured, I became an invalid of the 3d disability group having lost 50% of my ability to work; I had to resign from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine because of my physical unfitness. Now I cannot find job as I am disabled…”



43. Serhii M. (serviceman of the National Guard of Ukraine, was hеld captive for 181 days)

“…My military unit participated in combat operation to free Ilovaisk from illegal armed groups of the so-called DPR, where I was captured by Russian servicemen (paratroopers).

We were escorted by the DPR combatants in lorries to Donetsk, to the building of the former Office of the Security Service of Ukraine in Donetsk Oblast/ where we were kept in a basement for two months. Then I and two 40 other hostages were taken to Ilovaisk to the “DPR municipal commandant’s office”. For the period of six months, I and other hostages were repeatedly beaten, sometimes very cruelly: they kicked us, beat with iron rods and gun-butts. The tortures were carried out under the supervision of combatants nicknamed Adrenalin (in Donetsk) and Angel (in Ilovaisk)…”
