Oleg Baturin, a journalist of the Ukrainian Center for Journalistic Investigations, and a resident of Kakhovka, was abducted by the Russian military on March 12 and held captive for eight days. Oleg Baturin had to leave the Kherson region, which is still under the control of the Russian troops. 

He spoke about his captivity, torture, and the atmosphere of fear. Also, the impossibility of doing journalism when there is no internet or telephone connection and people simply disappear or are forced to cooperate with the invaders and participate in propaganda videos under pressure.
