Oleh Baturin, a journalist from Russian-occupied Kakhovka, Kherson Oblast, went missing on March 12. "I've lost a lot of weight. I'm very dirty and tired. I was beaten, humiliated, threatened. They said they would kill me. 187 hours of captivity. They wanted to break me, to show what will happen to every journalist," Baturin wrote on his sister's Facebook page.
