U.N. urges access to Ukrainian detainees held by Russia

STORY: “We urge the Russian Federation to grant unimpeded and confidential access to our Office and other independent international monitors to all places of detention under their control, notably to places where people who underwent 'filtration' are being detained,” Kehris said during a security council meeting on Wednesday.

She also said that U.N. human rights officials had "documented that men and women perceived as having ties with Ukrainian armed forces or state institutions, or as having pro-Ukrainian or anti-Russian views, were subjected to arbitrary detention, torture, ill-treatment and enforced disappearance."
