According to the Chief of Russia's National Defense Control Center, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, nationalist militants of the Ukrainian territorial defense forces are targeting civilians in the Donbass town of Sloviansk. Mizintsev has commanded Russia's forces in Mariupol since the outbreak of the war.

According to Mizintsev, the Ukrainian militants are detaining locals and questioning them to see if they have any ties to Russia or have Russian sympathies. The militants check civilians' phones for calls/texts to Russia, subscriptions to Russian social media channels, etc.

If anything seemingly pro-Russian is discovered, the locals are taken to undisclosed locations and tortured. They are also threatened that unless they pay the nationalists a minimum of $500, they will track down the victim's relatives and rape their wives and daughters. Scores of these civilians who were seen being taken away have not returned home and their fates remain unknown.

Though, this claim is consistent with the treatment we've seen of other Donbass residents by Ukrainians since the war began, in the fog of war, it's best to take all such reports with a grain of salt until confirmed by verifiable evidence.
