Russian occupying forces continue to grossly violate the laws and customs of war in their treatment of civilians. The Russians are looking for sabotage groups and artillery spotters in Kakhovka (Kherson Oblast). Detainees are taken to Hornostaivka and forced to testify under torture. Similar events are taking place in Borivske and Shchedryshcheve (Luhansk Oblast), where Russian forces conduct extensive searches, seize civilians’ mobile phones, kidnap people and take them to an unknown location.
