At least 600 Ukrainian civilians have disappeared in the Kherson region since the beginning of the Russian occupation of part of the region.
Oleksiy Tilnenko, the Chairman of the Board of CrimeaSOS, told about this in an interview with Facts.
"If we talk about the Kherson region, we recorded at least 600 such cases. Mostly, people are taken to occupied Crimea from the occupied Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. Before that, some are held in pre-trial detention centers, police stations, or SBU for a couple of days or weeks, some are held there and tortured for months. Everything depends on the person and the circumstances under which this forced disappearance and abduction took place", he said.
