Moscow has information that Russian prisoners in Ukraine have been subjected to torture, Russian Foreign Ministry Human Rights Ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov said Wednesday.

 

“We have evidence, in any case there is information, that torture is being used on our citizens in Ukrainian prisons,” Dolgov told reporters during a press conference at Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.

 

According to him, this information should be investigated carefully and seriously.

 

“If these facts are confirmed, someone in the Ukrainian authorities will have to be held responsible,” Dolgov added.
