As always, it’s Ukraine’s civilian population that bears the brunt of the war’s burden. A report compiled by the Associated Press now alleges Russia is holding thousands of Ukrainians in detention centres in Russia and occupied areas of Ukraine.

And in line with the findings of other reports, the AP has recorded accounts of routine torture and mistreatment of arbitrarily detained civilians at the hands of Russian troops.
