Russian military kidnap people in temporarily occupied territories and demand a ransom


Melitopol, Zaporozhzhia region

The amount for the return ranges from 10 to 30 thousand US dollars. Here are some appeals to the "provisional military administration of Russia" in Melitopol, Zaporozhye region:

“Your guys just arrived from the commandant’s office, locked my husband in the trunk and took him away. They didn’t provide any documents, nothing…”

"They twisted it up, loaded it into the trunk. They took the car, the walk-behind tractor ... they said that they were from the police ..."

"They took my husband away and said that they were taken to Melitopol to the 58th army or the 58th army took it away. What should I do?"

The answer to all these questions is that they are not solved by phone. And upon arrival, relatives are voiced the price.
