The Kharkiv Human Rights Protection Group has received information that at 6.30 on 31 January in penal colony No. 46 in the Rivne region, a group of around 25 Spetsnaz [special forces] officers in masks and full fighting gear was deployed. They allegedly subjected 16 prisoners to such a beating that some of them are still scarcely able to move.

As reported here, on 24 December the Ministry of Justice cancelled the State registration of Order No. 167 of the State Department for the Execution of Sentences, regulating the activities of the special anti-terrorist unit. If this new information is correct, then the Department is paying no heed.

As usual, such information cannot be verified given the lack of openness in State Department.
