Amnesty International documents Russian war crimes in Ukraine

Amnesty International documents Russian war crimes in Ukraine

Russian authorities deported Ukrainian civilians from occupied regions in what amounted to war crimes and likely crimes against humanity, Amnesty International says in a new report.

The report ‘Like a Prison Convoy”: Russia’s Unlawful Transfer of Civilians in Ukraine and Abuses During ‘Filtration’ also reveals that Russian troops forcibly separated children from their families and transferred them into Russian-controlled areas of Russia.

“Civilians told Amnesty International how they were forced through abusive screening processes – known as ‘filtration’ – which sometimes resulted in arbitrary detention, torture, and other ill-treatment.”

People detained during filtration told Amnesty International they had been denied food and water, with many held in dangerous and overcrowded conditions.

At filtration points, Russian officials took photographs of people, collected their fingerprints, searched their phones, forced some men to strip to their waists, and interrogated them.
