SBU collected almost 400 pieces of evidence proving Russian armed aggression against Ukraine

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has collected 393 pieces of evidence of the armed aggression of the Russian troops against Ukraine as well as the humiliation of Ukrainian prisoners of war, the SBU press service reports. 
The SBU has published the new evidence in a newsletter prepared in three languages – Ukrainian, English, and Russian.

"This is the fifth edition, prepared based on the results of a poll carried out by the security officers. Forty-three more Ukrainian citizens who had been held hostage by Russian terrorist groups were interviewed," the statement says.

One of the hostages, who had been in captivity for 23 days, says: "I was repeatedly interrogated in captivity, where a "DPR investigator" consistently emphasized that he would have me shot if he had a chance. During the interrogation I was constantly beaten, punched, and kicked. They repeatedly stepped on my wounded leg, causing unbearable pain."

At the same time the man noted that he had never received medical treatment.

"The Security Service of Ukraine is ready to provide comprehensive assistance in the study of these crimes to the representatives of international organizations, including human rights organizations by passing them the collected materials," noted the Chairman of the SBU Vasyl Hrytsak.

On December 27th, 73 Ukrainians, who had been held in captivity in the DPR and LPR, were released from the separatists’ prisons. Airplanes carrying the liberated prisoners of war landed at the Boryspil airport after midnight. They were met with flowers, posters, and Ukrainian flags.
