Details: She said that racist soldiers broke into the building of the Kherson pre-trial detention centre, whose staff and detainees were evacuated before the occupation. Currently, its premises are being arranged for the needs of Russian guard units that arrived in the city a day before. In Kherson and nearby settlements, the enemy is trying to impose a Putin-style police regime.

Quote: "More than 400 citizens of Ukraine have already been illegally arrested for resisting the aggressors. According to preliminary information, the pre-trial detention centre will be used to house our detained citizens.

The criminal actions of Russian militants violate the requirements of the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, which concern the protection of victims of international armed conflicts. I appeal to the international community to take these facts into account when imposing additional sanctions on the terrorist state of the Russian Federation".
