Russian mercenaries have been keeping 295 Ukrainian citizens in captivity in the territory of occupied Donbas; 30 of them are women. Tetyana Katrychenko, the coordinator of media initiative for human rights said so on air of Ukrainian Radio.
According to her, not all of these people were detained for political motives (some of them are charged with "espionage", "sabotage" and "high treason" in the occupied territories).
30 of these prisoners are women; among them are Oksana Parshyna, Natalya Statsenko, Olena Zaitseva, Olena Fedoruk, Maryna Yurchak and others.
Some of these ladies are held in the remand centre, while others were "sentenced" and taken either to a colony in Snizhne (Donetsk region) or in Seleznivska colony (Luhansk region).
