“Strategy for the Release of Illegally Detained Civilians and Find Missing Persons as a result of russian Aggression” presentation

Why is it interesting?
russia is currently holding more than 7,000 civilians in the occupied territories and within the russian federation without legal basis. Many individuals have been detained under vague charges of “resistance to a special military operation” without formal accusations, and the majority lack access to legal representation. Reports indicate widespread instances of mistreatment and torture against these detainees.

Since the commencement of russia’s comprehensive aggression against Ukraine, only 160 civilians have been released in prisoner exchanges, as reported on January 4, 2024.

The sluggish pace of releases underscores the imperative of implementing a systematic strategy focused on freeing all civilians unlawfully detained by russia, devoid of exchanges or conditions.

The event is jointly held by the Center for Civil Liberties and the Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.
