According to Radio Liberty journalists, the Russian military abducted the boy from his native village along with his uncle and threw him into a torture chamber.

“The eyes were blindfolded, the bag was thrown over, and the hands were tied with puffs. They took us to a basement. There were already 13 of us there”,- Vitalii said.

Vitalii, along with other teenagers, was kept in the basement of the Court of Appeal. He heard how the occupants tortured the prisoners, interrogating them where they hide their weapons, with whom and what they correspond with.

“They play Russian roulette, beat them with electric shocks, hang them on bars. When a person has a heart attack and he just hangs on the bars, they remove him and throw him into the cell. If you want, you will survive, if you want, you will not survive. They took me out into the corridor and beat me there”,- the boy recalled.
