The UN mission has not yet received access to the places where Russian prisoners of war are kept by Russia, while freely visiting places of internment of Russian prisoners of war in Ukraine.

This was stated by the head of the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine Matilda Bogner at the presentation on Tuesday, September 27, of a new report of the UN Human Rights Office regarding Ukraine for the period from February 1 to July 31, 2022, Ukrinform reports.

“During the reporting period, our human rights specialists had unimpeded access to the places of internment of prisoners of war in the territories controlled by the government of Ukraine. On the other hand, we have not been given confidential access to places of internment for Ukrainian prisoners of war in territories controlled by the Russian armed forces or associated armed groups,” she said.

Bogner added that the information the Mission is receiving indicates that there are serious health and safety risks for Ukrainian defenders in Russian captivity.

“They are being abused. In addition, their dignity is humiliated. Such treatment of Ukrainian prisoners of war is systematic both in the occupied territories and in places of internment in the Russian Federation,” she summed up.

As Ukrinform reported, Russian troops may be preparing for the forced mobilization of Ukrainian prisoners of war to fight on the side of Russia in violation of the Geneva Convention on Prisoners of War.
