A confessing video with Ukrainian Evgeny Panov, was detained in the Crimea on suspicion of planning the acts of sabotage on the peninsula, released by Russian authorities shows the signs of testifying under duress.

This was stated by Olga Skrypnyk from the Crimean Human Rights Group on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"There are a lot of questions to this video, experts say that there are things that point to the fact that it was a forced confession," - said Skrypnyk.

"Most likely, the charges for Zahtey would be the same as for Panov, and the process will also take place behind closed doors. This is a problem because there is little access to information, allegations, evidence that will be used by the FSB. If Zahtey was related to nationalist groups operating on the territory of Ukraine ("Peacemaker" - ed.), it can be a problem, because the FSB uses this information in their charges," - said the head of Crimean human rights group.
