“The conditions of their detention were terrible, he could have been tortured” — the family of a British man who died in captivity of the “DPR”

The family of Briton Paul Ury, who died in captivity of the “DPR”, considers the Russian government guilty of his death, as well as those who held him in captivity, reports the BBC.

According to the relatives of the Briton, at the time of his arrest, Paul had insulin with him, as he suffered from type 1 diabetes, and the authorities of the “DPR” could not help but know what kind of drug it was and for what diagnosis it was prescribed.

They also stated that representatives of the “DPR” did not allow international humanitarian organizations to visit the captives, who tried to check the conditions in which the British were being held. “It only says, the family believes, that the conditions were terrible, and the DPR sheep did not want to know about it,” the BBC notes.

According to relatives, Uri could have been tortured, although there is no independent confirmation of their assumptions, the BBC clarifies.

The fact that Paul Uri died was previously reported by the Ombudsman of the self-proclaimed republic, Daria Morozova.

According to her, during the first medical examination in the "DPR", Paul Ury was diagnosed with such chronic diseases as insulin-dependent diabetes, damage to the respiratory system, kidneys, and a number of diseases of the cardiovascular system.

“From our side, despite the severity of the alleged crime, Paul Uri was provided with appropriate medical assistance. Nevertheless, given the diagnoses and stress, he died on July 10, ”Morozova said.

At the end of April, the Russian military detained two Britons, 45-year-old Paul Ury and 22-year-old Dylan Healey, on the territory of the Zaporozhye region. They introduced themselves as volunteers of the non-governmental organization Presidium Network, which is engaged in the evacuation of people from conflict zones. Uri and Healy had to evacuate a woman with two children. They were heading towards Dniprorudny in the Zaporozhye region and were caught at a checkpoint.

On June 9, the “DPR” sentenced to death three foreign mercenaries who took part in the war with Russia on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the territory of the so-called DPR and LPR. Two British men, Aiden Eslin and Sean Pinner, and Moroccan Saadoun Brahim were sentenced to death by firing squad. In this regard, the UK sent a note of protest to Russia.
