~Russia illegally detains 25,000 Kremlin prisoners

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

The ZMINA Human Rights Centre has found that at least 21 prisoners require urgent medical care and may die unless they receive it. 

During the full-scale invasion, the National Police began investigating the enforced disappearance of 8,800 people. Russian Children's Ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova claims Russia has illegally abducted over 700,000 children from Ukraine.

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 the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (Qırım) confirms 189 illegally imprisoned Ukrainian citizens, 123 of whom are Qırımtatarlar.

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

The prisoner was transferred with illegally convicted Aziz and Asan Akhtemovs.

Dzhelial's wife received a letter from the Supreme Court of Crimea responding to the cassation appeal of her husband and Asan Akhtemov. The address is Minusinsk, so Dzhelial is likely being held there.

"There is no news from Nariman. There's no information about his whereabouts,  city or condition. Most likely, the guys are kept in special blocks where they are not allowed to make phone calls," — the prisoner's wife noted.

It will be recalled that the Russians illegally detained Dzhelial and the Akhmetov brothers in September 2021. They were accused of alleged sabotage. A year later, the so-called 'court' sentenced Dzhelial to 17 years in a maximum security colony, and Asan and Aziz Akhtemovs were sentenced to 15 and 13 years, respectively.

In temporarily occupied Crimea (Qirim), the so-called court considers an illegal criminal case against Mykyta Chobotar, a resident of the Kherson region

The "court" of the temporarily occupied Simferopol (Aqmescit) is hearing a case that was illegally opened against a resident of Hola Prystan, Kherson region.

Crimean Process reports.

Russians accuse Mykyta Chobotar of allegedly creating, heading and financing an illegal armed group.

No witnesses are heard at the occupation "court" sessions.

Earlier, Krymski Novyny reported that Russian special services, when detaining Chobotar in Hola Prystan, "shot the man in the legs with airguns and then forced him to remove lead bullets from his body".

"Yaroslav's teeth have fallen out. He's afraid to go to the dentist because of the unsanitary conditions," said Maryna Zhuk.

The prisoner's lawyer will file a complaint about Zhuk's inadequate detention conditions.

On June 17, 2022, an explosion occurred near the Melitopol Industrial and Economic College. The Russians detained Yaroslav Zhuk, who was passing by. After that, the security forces tortured the man and forced him to defame himself. 

It will be recalled that a Russian court extended Yaroslav Zhuk's detention for another three months.
