The scientist Ihor Kozlovsky, who was released from the captivity of the ORDLO militants in Donbas region, said that he was beaten and militants put arms against his head. This Kozlovsky said on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

Kozlovsky noted that the militants allegedly found two grenades in his house and demanded to admit that this ammunition belonged to him. He added that such "conversations" were accompanied by tortures and beatings.

"In most cases, it was beating with the help of different object, I did not see which particular, I had a sack on my head, and it lasted for several hours. Twisting Russian roulette, putting a gun against my head, pulling the trigger, they kept demanding, so I recognized that this was my ammunition," said Kozlovsky.

He added that during the beating, he practically lost consciousness.

"As I could not see, I listened. I listened to my pain, how the blood boils because there is a big concentration on the heart, my heart started beating with interruptions." They were shouting: "this how the Russian world comes" "the Russian world beats you," said the scientist.

Kozlovsky also talked about how he was captured by militants. According to him, that day he was at home with his disabled son.

"I was detained about two o'clock in the afternoon when I went out to pay for the community service and take out the garbage. An MGB car was there, they approached, asked for documents, said that" you are invited to a conversation for just 20 minutes.” These "20 minutes" lasted two years. I did not know for a long time in what condition my son was, I was not told about him, more likely they want to make an extra psychological pressure," Kozlovsky added.

We recall, the scientist Igor Kozlovsky, along with 73 other Ukrainians, was released from the captivity of militants on December 27. Later Kozlovsky said that being in captivity of Donbas militants had a negative impact on his health, and therefore he should undergo rehabilitation, which he interrupts in order to communicate with his relatives.
