Russia: Police clash with anti-war protesters on street

Women suspected of protesting Vladimir Putin’s war have been forced to strip naked and crouch five times in front of police cameras, they claim.

The suspects, aged 18 to 27, were arrested near a rally and subjected to “degrading and degrading” treatment, their lawyer says.

Female police officers ordered them to undress, but in some cases the cell doors were left open and male police officers walked past.

All the cells have cameras with VCRs, so they suspect they too have been spied on.

Men detained at the same time were not subjected to stripping and squatting orders.

“I am outraged that each of them was searched in a degrading manner in the detention center, which is against our laws,” complained attorney Olimpiada Usanova, who is going to court on the women’s behalf to challenge their treatment.

“The women were searched by stripping and crouching five times in the presence of a detention center officer.

“A second humiliating search was carried out in the cells a few hours later and the women were forced to lift their shirts, remove their panties and expose their breasts in the camera surveillance area.

“I am concerned that female officers did not close the doors when some women were being examined and male officers were lurking there.”

Usanova believes male officers also saw footage of strip searches and squats on cellphone camera footage, calling it a “serious injury.”

The scandal was in March but has only now come to light as the women are taking legal action against their alleged treatment, a report by Lydia Kuzmenko in highlights.

Student Ekaterina Deviatenko, 18, is one of several “victims” who have agreed to reveal their identity before attempting to challenge their treatment in court.

She claimed to have been listening to a musician near the protest rally when she was wheeled into a cell on wheels and locked.

“They searched us very slowly, arrogantly and with mockery,” she said.

She said a police officer ordered her to undress, so although it seemed strange, she first stripped down to her underwear, but the police officer demanded that she continue to undress.

She continued: “I replied that I have my period,

“The policewoman replied, ‘Well, I’m a woman, I understand everything. Get undressed and squat down.”

“I had to do five squats. I sat down and then got dressed. I was given sheets and sent to the cell with the other girls.”

She said the conditions in the cell itself were terrible. There was no toilet paper, no trash can. The smell was terrible, everyone was constantly sick.

Other women who identified themselves – all fined for protesting Putin’s war – included Zemfira Suleimanova, 25, Taisiya Kudelkina, 24, Natalya Nevar, 30, and Irina M, 26.

One woman, Yevgeniya, 22, told how she was addressed as “bunny” and “kitten” at Sormovsky police station before being ordered to strip naked.

A female officer “led me to the wall and ordered me to undress completely. And squat four times. We were ordered to stand against a wall in our underwear with our breasts exposed.

“That was with a camera pointed at us and video recording.

“The cell door was not closed and there were male staff in the hallway.”

Another woman, Anastasiya, 24, said a video camera was visible as she was ordered to undress and expose her breasts.

The women were forced to pay fines of up to £215 for allegedly taking part in a banned anti-war rally.

“It seems to me that this was not done according to the personal will of the officials, but under the supervision of management,” said the lawyer.

Most of the women were between 18 and 25 years old, and after being in the special detention center, many had panic attacks and tantrums.

The lawyer continued: “If we don’t talk and write about it, we may be subjected to even harsher methods in the future, including rape.

“We have filed a class action lawsuit against the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Nizhny Novgorod, seeking damages for moral damage for violation of rights and humiliation.

“We also appeal against improper detention in police stations.”

They claim an average compensation of £1,700 for each woman.
