The Army or the Thieves?

Russian occupiers steal Ukrainian activists, volunteers, journalists, and politicians

The Ukrainian commissioner for human rights, Lyudmila Denisova, reported on new crimes by the occupiers against civilians. The Russians are committing crimes in the temporarily occupied territories to suppress the Ukrainian truth.

In Berdyansk, Victoria Roschina — a journalist who worked for the Ukrainian web resource Hromadske and told about the war — was stolen. They could not find the Victoria Roschina yet.

The hostages were also journalist Oleh Baturyn from Kakhovka.

"On March 12 at 5 pm, I was captured at the Kakhovka bus station. I was beaten, threatened, humiliated," said the journalist.

According to Oleh Baturyn, the occupiers want to show what will happen to Ukrainian journalists.

Russian enemies also arrested 20 Ukrainian activists on the territory of the Donetsk region.

The occupiers are not afraid to attack political figures. They’ve already stolen the mayor of Melitopol Ivan Fedorov and the secretary of the territorial society Nova Kakhovka Dmytro Vasiliev. Ivan Fedorov was returned in exchange for the occupiers. Dmytro Vasiliev is still held hostage.
