This was reported by Radio Liberty.

The reports were prepared by human rights activists, Ukrainian Mission to EU and Euro-MPs.

“The report is shocking. It reveal all and murders and tortures people were subjected to. The woman, who was speaking today (on April 5 – ed.) would not be here unless two British journalists had made a photo of her. This saved her life”, said Euro-MP Mark Demesmaeker.

According to him, such crimes should not remain unpunished. Demesmaeker proposes to use these reports as a basis to start an investigation within the International Criminal Court.

“28 hostages of Kremlin” tells about Ukrainians unlawfully arrested in Russian and annexed Crimea.

“One of the hostages is a 74-year-old man who was communicating with his family members from Ukraine. That’s his only fault. Still, he was sent to the so-called ‘New GULAG’”, said the head of Open Dialog Foundation Lyudmyla Kozlovska.

Human rights activists emphasized that hostages are often subjected to tortures. Besides, they are also often deprived of appropriate medical aid, as well as lawyer support. Finally, they are not allowed to communicate with their families.

After the EP session, both reports will be delivered in Parliaments of a number of European states. Besides, the reports will be sent to International Criminal Court in Hague.
