‘Izolyatsia’ is an illegal prison, equipped by the Russian Federation on the site of a former insulation materials factory in the temporarily Russian-occupied territory of Ukraine in Donetsk. Before the Russian invasion in 2014, this space was used by the ‘Izolyatsia’ platform for cultural initiatives.
Since 2014, there were more than 160 illegal prisons in the Russian-occupied territories of Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, where more than three thousand people have been illegally held captive and subjected to torture and inhumane treatment. In 2022, after full-scale Russian invasion, Ukrainian Police reported discovery of at least 48 new illigal detention and torture places in liberated areas.
