Oleksandra Matviychuk, head of the human rights organization Center for Civil Liberties, which won the Nobel Peace Prize, said that the Russian Federation also holds children captive.

She said this in an interview with Ukrainian News Agency.

"Such cases exist and, unfortunately, they are not isolated," she answered the question of whether there were cases where children were among the civilian prisoners.

She told about a specific case of taking a child hostage.

"I immediately think of a very well-known case that we dealt with regarding Vlad Buriak, who was taken hostage because his father is one of the officials in the Zaporizhzhia Region. The child was taken hostage. The entire car with civilians, in which was Vlad, was allowed to go, and it was he who was taken because of his last name," Matviychuk said.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Matviychuk said that the occupiers keep civilian prisoners in torture chambers in the occupied territories of Ukraine and in pre-trial detention centers and other places of deprivation of liberty on the territory of Russia.

The Center for Civil Liberties recorded 28,000 war crimes committed by Russians.
