Ukraine’s Right Sector nationalist militia is one of the worst culprits -Amnesty International.

Amnesty International. identified Ukraine’s Right Sector nationalist militia as one of the worst culprits on the pro-government side.  “The Ukrainian authorities must investigate all allegations of war crimes and other abuses,  open files and collect evidence of abuses by separatist forces and bring to justice all those responsible for perpetrating such heinous acts,”

“Right Sector has reportedly held dozens of civilian prisoners as hostages, brutally torturing them and extorting large amounts of money from them and their families,  Russia consistently denies Ukrainian and Western allegations that it is supporting eastern Ukraine’s separatists with troops and equipment. The Defence Ministry said this week that the two men had been soldiers but were no longer serving.  Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia “is taking all necessary measures to get them out of captivity

“Amnesty International said. Amnesty said attempts to get Ukrainian authorities to address complaints over Right Sector have been ignored.

Both sides in the conflict in eastern Ukraine are perpetrating war crimes almost daily , including torture and summary killings of prisoners, according to Amnesty International.

Concern about the treatment of prisoners comes as Ukrainian authorities face scrutiny this week for publicly parading two men they say were Russian soldiers captured while fighting alongside separatists.

Amnesty is urging UN agencies and experts to visit detention sites in Ukraine to meet those being held by both sides.
