Is Russian “Denazification” Depriving Ukrainians Right to Return to the Country?

Russians put Ukrainians in filtration camps with torture and abuse

While the whole world is developing and moving towards civility, Russia is sending Ukrainians to special camps. The camps have been in use since the Soviet Union.

In 2022, Russia again created filtration settlements. The first appearance of such camps was recorded after the beginning of the brutal battles for Mariupol. The Russian army forcibly led people to the territory of the unrecognized Donetsk People’s Republic and Rostov on the Don, Russia. Later, filtration camps also began to be used for residents of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. 

On May 30, it was reported that Russian criminals had set up another camp. The Russian Federation has opened filtration camps at border crossing points between Russia and Estonia.

Another "peaceful" and "rescue" operation of Russia brings only pain and tears. Some managed to escape from a special camp where Russian soldiers find out about:

  • The choice of the political regime;
  • Membership of security agencies in Ukraine or volunteer organizations, etc.

The victims say that families are separated by the occupiers: mothers are housed separately, and children are housed separately. Cases have been recorded of children being taken to Russian territory without their parents. There are also cases of torture and rape.

According to the minister for human rights Liudmyla Denisova, more than 200 thousand Ukrainian citizens have been taken from Mariupol to the territory of Russia.
