Released from the Ukrainian captivity on December 18, the LPR serviceman Vladislav Kondalov told about the torture commonly used in prisons and remand prisons of Ukraine. He made this statement today at a press conference in the DAN press centre.
“Since the moment of detention, it was very tough. Constant threats… they struck me on the head, they wanted to cut my hand, they tied me to a pullup bar and turned on a chainsaw. They forced me to drink a solvent, so as not to feel pain. The most severe torture was at the very beginning of my detention” – Kondalov said.
Vladislav Kandalov voluntarily joined the LPR militia in November 2014. In early March 2016 was taken prisoner by the Ukrainian side. According to him, in the middle of December he was released from the SSU prison and taken by the employees to the “gray zone” between Ukraine and the DPR.
We recall that earlier it was reported to the Ombudsman’s Office that on December 18, Ukrainian forces left three supporters of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics in the “gray zone”.
