Police in Kyiv Region have issued a notice of suspicion to a Russian serviceman who was holding citizens in a non-working freezer of a former canteen at the Antonov airport, the press service of the National Police of Ukraine has said.
Law enforcement officers found that from 8 to 17 March 2022, the serviceman, together with his accomplices, held people in a non-working freezer of the former Antonov canteen.
During interrogations, the Russians tortured Ukrainian prisoners by kicking their vital organs, electrocuting and depriving them of air.
"They brought us to the forest and threw us into a pit which had the guys who had already been killed. Later they brought two other men who were shot in front of us and thrown on top of us. We covered ourselves with bodies because it was very cold. Then Russian servicemen took us to a freezer room, where the FSB began interrogating us," says victim Yuriy.
According to Yuriy's testimony, there were also women in captivity. The Russian military abused them at night.
"One of the women had cancer, we heard her say repeatedly that she needed medicine. The occupiers did not give her any medication, she was crying in pain," says Yuriy.
Kyiv regional police investigators issued the 47-year-old Russian serviceman with a notice of suspicion of violating the laws and customs of war committed by a group of persons by prior conspiracy.
