In Moscow, a girl who was accused under an article about “discrediting” the Russian army spoke about torture in the Lyublino police department. According to SOTA, the reason for the detention of Daria Ivanova was the leaflets allegedly distributed to her with the text: “We will bring a coffin to every house at the expense of the state.”
According to the girl, four plainclothes policemen came to her apartment on September 25 at about 10 am. They dragged the girl out of the apartment by her arms and legs and put one of the employees in a personal car.
At the police station, Daria was forced to confess to the offense, and after that they began to use physical and moral violence against her. Later, Daria recorded the beatings, turning to the doctor, she was diagnosed with a bruise of the soft tissues. As the girl said, at the police station she was beaten and threatened to plant drugs.
“They choked, kicked, punched, grabbed by the hair and beat on the surrounding objects. The beating was carried out by an employee of the center for combating extremism. They threatened to attribute prostitution and plant drugs during a personal search, ”said Daria.
As a result, a protocol was drawn up against the girl under the article on “discrediting” the Russian army and released on a promise to appear.
