~ 25, 000 Kremlin prisoners illegally detained by Russia

According to the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights, Dmytro Lubinets, this is the number of civilians abducted by the Russian Federation.

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the National Police has begun investigating the enforced disappearance of 8,800 people.

The Media Initiative for Human Rights has identified about one hundred places where abducted civilians are held.

The Mission of the President of Ukraine in ARC confirms 182 illegally imprisoned Ukrainian citizens, 60% of whom are Qırımtatarlar.

During the full-scale war, 2,576 Ukrainian citizens were returned to Ukraine, including 144 civilians.

On July 6, a Russian court sentenced Yurii Domanchuk and Vitalii Skakun to 23 and 24 years in prison

A court in Rostov-on-Don found two Ukrainian citizens guilty of an alleged attempted assassination of Vitalii Buliuk, deputy head of the temporary occupation administration of the Kherson region.

This was confirmed by a statement by Russian security forces.

According to the register of missing persons of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, contact with Vitalii Skakun was lost on November 27, 2022. It is unknown where this happened. Instead, Yurii Domanchuk was in the temporarily occupied Skadovsk on the eve of his disappearance on December 13, 2022.

The Russians claim that the abductees were allegedly tracking the movements of Buliuk, the first deputy head of the temporary occupation administration of the Kherson region, and then blew him up.

It will be recalled that the car of collaborator Buliuk exploded in Skadovsk on December 12, 2022. He was injured and hospitalised.

On July 7, a "court" in the temporarily occupied Qırım fined human rights activist Abdureshyt Dzhepparov

The Russians claim that Dzhepparov administered the Facebook page of the Qırım Gayesi human rights initiative.

The Crimean Process initiative reported this.

It will be recalled that Dzhepparov is a Qırımlı human rights activist. He was held under administrative arrest from April 25 to May 7. During this time, five publications appeared on the Qırım Gayesi page, which Dzhepparov could not write without the Internet in the special detention centre.

When the charges against the Qırımlı became known, Qırım Gayesi claimed that Dzhepparov was not associated with the page. The human rights initiative believes that the security forces want to use a reputable human rights activist as a hostage to force the initiative to stop its activities. On the eve of the start of the trial against Dzhepparov, Qırım Gayesi decided to suspend its activities to protect the human rights defender.

However, the "court" still imposed a fine of 45 thousand rubles (18 thousand hryvnias) on him.

Kremlin prisoner Bohdan Ziza has developed stomach problems after a hunger strike

Ziza has already stopped his hunger strike but still cannot eat.

His sister Oleksandra Barkova told Crimea.Realities about it.  

It will be recalled that Ziza is a Crimean artist who poured yellow and blue paint on the building of the temporary occupation administration of Kezlev (Yevpatoriia) on May 16, 2022. On June 6, a Russian court sentenced him to 15 years in prison on charges of "terrorism."

After that, on June 10, Ziza started a hunger strike. In this way, the prisoner wanted to achieve the revocation of his illegally issued Russian citizenship. After 17 days, he stopped his hunger strike. Prior to that, he wrote about his condition in a letter: "Weakness is taking its toll, mostly in my arms and legs. I feel dizzy from any movement. I hardly get out of bed."

Currently, the Russians are keeping Ziza in isolation. Despite this, his sister managed to find out that the prisoner was still not eating. " His body rejects food after a long pause," she said.

Russians returned the operated prisoner Emir-Usein Kuku to prison too soon

Instead of the required one or two weeks, Kuku stayed under the supervision of doctors for several days.

His wife, Meriem Kuku, informed Crimean Solidarity about this.

It will be recalled that in 2015, a Russian security officer beat Kuku and damaged his kidneys. In 2019, a Russian court sent the Qırımlı to prison for 12 years on fabricated terrorism charges. The man does not receive medical care in prison, and his kidney disease has become chronic.

On June 21, the Russians urgently took Emir-Usein Kuku from the colony to the hospital as his health deteriorated sharply. At first, human rights activists believed it was due to kidney disease. Doctors also could not understand what had happened. It turned out that Kuku had a bowel disease. On June 24, doctors operated on him.

The following week he was transferred back to the colony, although he still had to be under medical supervision.

Now he is forced to restore his health in prison on his own, although the food there is not suitable for rehabilitation after bowel surgery. It is painful for him to stand on his feet for a long time because of the stitches.

Russian security forces transfer prisoner Memet Belyalov to a punishment cell

Russians are putting pressure on prisoner Belyalov: he was placed in a punishment cell for 7 days, justifying it with a fabricated excuse.

His wife, Ediye Belyalova, informed Crimean Solidarity about this.

It will be recalled that in 2017, Russian security forces illegally detained Belyalov. In 2020, a Russian court sentenced him to 18 years in prison on fabricated terrorism charges.

The Russians used an artificial pretext to put the prisoner in a punishment cell. Muslim Belyalov performed wudu in his cell in the prison. This ritual involves washing his hands up to the elbow. At that time, a security officer entered his cell to check on him. The prisoner did not have time to put on a long-sleeved shirt, which the Russian interpreted as disorderly conduct. Because of this, Belyalov was sent to the punishment cell.

For the last two months, the prisoner has been constantly sent to the punishment cell. Belyalov could be in the punishment cell, and the Russians would still bring him new reports of 'violations'.
