OREANDA-NEWS   Russian servicemen returned to Russia told investigators about the facts of bullying them in Ukrainian captivity. As the press service of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation told TASS on Monday, pre-investigation checks are being carried out on these facts.

"The Russian servicemen, who were returned to the territory of the Russian Federation as a result of the prisoner exchange with the Ukrainian side, told the UK investigators about numerous facts of bullying them," the department noted.

So, one of them reported that the Ukrainian servicemen tied his hands and feet, and also put a bag on his head and did not take it off for several days, beating him throughout this time. They interrogated the Russian, as they did not like the answers, put a gun to his head and threatened to shoot and bury him. "The Ukrainian nationalists carried out the last threat by throwing the prisoner to the bottom of the trench and covering him with earth. The threat of deprivation of life was so real that only after lying in this position for about 5 hours, he realized that he would live," the UK reported.
