According to the investigation, one of the suspects served as a prison guard in Donetsk region in April 2014 through February 2015. The prison was established in the building of regional department of the Security Service of Ukraine. He mistreated the captured Ukrainian fighters who served with a territorial defense battalion. The culprit used to beat them up, inflicting severe injuries, specifically broken ribs. He tortured them to make them testify against themselves; the prisoners were supposed to admit military crimes that they actually never committed.

The second suspect did not provide due hygiene conditions for the prisoners; he served in a different prison, located in the remand centre of local unit of Chief Department of Ukraine's Interior Ministry in Snizhne, Donetsk region. The captives were held in poor sanitary conditions; they suffered from malnutrition.
