Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova spoke about: Russian invaders continue to carry out filtration measures in occupied Mariupol.

According to her, оver the past week, russians have forcibly removed about 3,000 Ukrainians, including more than 300 children, to a filtration camp in the village of Bezymenne. After filtering measures, the occupiers formed groups of Mariupol residents, who were first deported to Taganrog and then to the depressed regions of russia.

“At least 10% of citizens who do not pass the filter are considered occupiers “dangerous to the russian regime.”  They are arrested, then sent to the former penal colony № 52 in the village of Olenivka, Donetsk region, or taken to the infamous Isolation Prison in Donetsk”, – said Denisova.

Being there is accompanied by long interrogations, torture, threats of execution and coercion.

Hostage-taking and torture are acts of terrorism under the Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism and War Crimes under Article 8 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
