Thousands of people went through the torture of Russian terrorists in the Kherson region. This was stated by the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights Dmitry Lubinets.
According to him, the invaders did not seek information from people - they were simply beaten.. Witnesses reported that people were taken from their homes or from the street, put a bag over their heads and taken away: for several days they were beaten severely, electric shocks were applied, and practically no questions were asked.
Lubinets said that people were often tortured with electric current and brought to such a state that some begged to be killed.
The prisoners were starved and thirsty.
The invaders often recorded their atrocities on video. The Ombudsman noted that it is impossible to explain "why such cruelty, such an attitude was simply towards ordinary civilians, and even more so towards children."
According to him, the coordination of torture in the territories occupied by Russia is carried out by the FSB of the Russian Federation, and divisions of the National Guard operated in Kherson. When they left this territory, the Russian Guards left elements of their equipment.
Regarding cases of sexual violence by the invaders in the Kherson region, Lubinets said that such facts are recorded, but the topic is very complex and delicate.
