Inspections are being carried out in the temporary detention facilities in the annexed Crimea, according to the website of the Ombudswoman in Crimea.

“The inspections have already been carried out in detention centers in Razdolny, Alushta and Bakhchisarai. For example, in Razdolny, there is no drinking water in cells, and expired medicines have been revealed in medical centers. In general, capital repairs of temporary detention facilities and modernization of the equipment remain topical issues. Another problem is the closure of some detention centers due to severity of Russian norms and standards imposed on the places of detention,” reads the statement.

It is noted that the Crimean Ombudswoman plans to inspect all the detention centers located on the peninsula.
