Revealing the Horrors: Ukrainian Civilians Held Captive by Russia | The Gaze
Witness a powerful demonstration by the Centre for Civil Liberties that sheds light on the plight of Ukrainian civilians illegally detained by Russia. This poignant performance, coinciding with the Day of Enforced Disappearances, is based on real testimonies of those who have returned from captivity. Russian security forces subjected these individuals to brutal beatings, torture, starvation, and psychological torment, often targeting them for simply speaking Ukrainian. The stories are harrowing, featuring threats and even the horrifying promise of being burned alive.
