Penal camp designed to break the will of Russian conscientious objectors

Mobilized Russians who disobeyed wartime orders are locked up in a former penal camp in Luhansk. Conditions are catastrophic there. They can only get out if they return to the front.


Russia mobilized 300,000 citizens. 87,000 are already at the front in Ukraine. But those who do not obey orders will be locked away.

If you don’t want to fight, you’re forced to. That seems to be the motto of the commanders of the Russian troops. There is no due process for conscientious objection for those who have been mobilized; instead, the soldiers are imprisoned. Their “readiness to fight” is to be restored behind bars – also with violence and humiliation.

In the former penal camp in the Ukrainian city of Perewalsk in the Luhansk region, even before the partial mobilization, soldiers who did not want to take part in the war despite being bound by a contract were illegally detained. Now the former penal colony, which activists have called inhumane, is back in operation. Now mobilized citizens who don’t want to fight are locked up there. Under the name “Center for maintaining combat readiness” their morale should be strengthened again. Because there the slogan is: fight or jail. This is reported by the opposition Russian news portal Mediazona.
