Dzheppar: Ukrainians forcibly taken out of occupied territories and put in Crimean prisons

12.05.2022 17:11

Russian troops forcibly take Ukrainians out of the occupied territories and put them in Crimean prisons. If Ukrainians refuse to cooperate with the occupation “administrations”, they are killed.

“We receive alarming reports from human rights activists on the use of Crimean prisons for Ukrainians illegally detained and forcibly displaced from the newly occupied territories of my country, particularly from Kherson. The Russians have also launched a new project – the creation of the so-called ‘Kherson People’s Republic’, blackmailing people, killing them just if they refuse to cooperate with collaborators, a ‘new administration’. I am talking about Melitopol, Mariupol, and other cities,” First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar said at the 34th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The official called on the Council and its member states to take decisive action and outlined the blatant human rights violations recorded in Kyiv, Chernihiv, Sumy and Kharkiv regions in late February and March when Russian troops were stationed there.

“Thousands of innocent civilians were executed in the presence of their families, women were raped in front of their children, and entire families were buried alive under the rubble of destroyed buildings. The Russian authorities responded to these atrocities in their own way – denying everything, spreading misinformation, assigning higher ranks to the brigade members that committed these crimes in the town of Bucha,” said the first deputy minister.

Dzheppar called on the UN Human Rights Council to take effective steps and respond decisively to the Russian army’s war crimes in Ukraine.

In particular, she mentioned Mariupol, which had been reduced to ashes, and the persistent resistance that Ukrainian defenders continue to put up while holding positions at Azovstal steelworks.

“Moscow’s war, unleashed in violation of the UN Charter and the fundamental principles of international law, is a war against all of us. And only when the world stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people, this evil can be defeated,” Dzheppar stressed.

The 34th session of the UN Human Rights Council on the deterioration of the human rights situation in Ukraine due to Russian aggression is held in Geneva today.



  1. This incredible cruelty is what they intended and still intend for all Ukraine if they get a chance : to inflict genocide, race replacement and create a nation of slaves and masters. Unbelievable in the 21st century that people still think like that.
    We saw in yesterday’s Telegraph, a Russian hag stating that she hated Ukrainian children and wanted them dead, but if they came to Russia she would personally cut their ears off.
    Putinazis make the fiends of isis seem almost normal.

    • I am glad us and others are documenting Putin’s crimes. Yesterday Sir Scradge I saw this news blog was used for 2 references on a wiki page. It’s heart-warming that we are able to convert such news into English for the world to see and USE. So far this year we have had over 6,000 referrals from wiki pages.

      • Congratulations redders! You could be heading in the direction of someone like Drudge.
        But how are they referencing UT? With the exception of a very small number of original articles, the site is a compendium of news and OpEds from a wide range of sources.

        • I think our format is attractive. Very few ads, no pop ups, easy to copy and paste, plus we usually post the cream of the crop. I see in the stats that people usually hang around and read a second or third article. On another note, we just post info about Ukraine so we are a niche site and it is in English. In the spirit of the original UT answering RT’s propaganda in English. I think many people went to RT for the news since it is easy to find, plentiful and in English. You Writers make the difference.
