According to Shvetsov, in the morning of 4 October he was picked up from his home and taken to the police station; after he refused to confess, he was beaten.
One of the policemen kicked me in the groin area and I fell down. I felt a sharp pain in my lower abdomen and groin. While I was on the floor the other officers kicked me on the back, which made me feel severe pain and humiliation.Gennady Shvetsov
The operative told me to take off my clothes. I refused. He said he was going to rape me, he was going to “play the bottle” with me.Gennady Shvetsov
