Quote of Baturin: "On March 12, at 5 p.m., I was caught at the Kakhovka bus station. They beat me. They humiliated me. They threatened me. They said they would kill me.
Almost eight days. 187 hours of captivity. Virtually no food. Some days almost without water. No soap, no change of clothes. Not understanding where I am. But they clearly knew for what. They wanted to break, trample. Show what will happen to every journalist: you will be deprived. You will be killed.
For almost 8 days I sat with my head tilted or covered. They were afraid I could see their faces. "
