"Crimean saboteur" Panov was beaten with metal pipe
State lawyer did nothing after having learned about tortures
Ukrainian citizen Yevhen Panov, detained by Russian security forces in the occupied Crimea was beaten with a metal pipe in the first few days after the arrest. It is reported by the Crimean Human Rights Group referring to his brother Ihor Kotelyanets living in Lviv.
In particular Kotelyanets noted that at a meeting Panov's lawyer found the scars from the handcuffs on his hands, multiple dark bruises on the right leg (black circles). Ukrainian Defense suggests that these bruises and scars appeared as a result of torture.
This information was confirmed by the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Group. Lawyers received Russian documents from which it follows that a suspect terrorist Ukrainian Yevhen Panov gave testimony under pressure.
Panov told the lawyer that he had been kidnapped on August 7 by the FSB operatives. It is not specified where exactly he was kidnapped, in Crimea or in the continental Ukraine. When abducted he was hit in the forehead, the cut marked on photos and videos confirms it.
In addition to the physical torture, said Panov, psychological one was applied to him too.
The arrested told the state lawyer about the tortures, however, wrote Kotelyanets on Wednesday, she has not taken any action. "The state lawyer did nothing after learning about the tortures. Our lawyer could get access to him only after 2 months. None of our parcels to his wife did not come. He has been detained for two months in torture in cold, without clothing, hygiene products and other basic necessities", he wrote on Facebook.
Yevhen Panov was detained in the case of preparation of acts of sabotage in the Crimea on August 15. The total number of detainees reached nine in this case. Moscow blames Ukrainian intelligence in arranging the attacks.
