In 2014-2018, the joint center at the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has managed to release 3,224 Ukrainian hostages from the militants’ captivity in Donbas.

"Thanks to the Joint Center [for Coordination of Search, Release of Captives, Hostages and Location of Missing Persons] at the Security Service of Ukraine as well as volunteers, servicemen, prosecutors and NGOs, we have managed to release 3,224 captives," SBU chief Vasyl Hrytsak said at the briefing on the occasion of the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He noted that the diplomats of foreign states working in Ukraine were given the booklets with testimonies of 430 captives who stayed in the “death camps.” In this context, Hrytsak said that the SBU had started to collect testimonies of people subjected to torture from the very first days of the war.

The SBU is ready to submit the evidence to the international organizations that will help convey the truth about the events in the occupied territories, the chief of Ukraine’s Security Service added.
