He drank from puddles and ate crumbs: a captured Ukrainian soldier Gordeev was found in the basement near Bakhmut
It's no secret that Russia is a cynical and cruel state. In the Stratcom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, another violation by the occupiers of the norms of the Geneva Convention was recorded.
During the cleansing of the positions where the Russians were located, a captured Ukrainian fighter Alexei Gordeev was found in the basement near Bakhmut.
Lost half my weight
According to preliminary information, Alexei lay in the dungeon among the dead and seriously wounded brothers for 42 days. The prisoner ate crumbs and drank from puddles. A month and a half later, Gordeev lost weight from 80 to 42 kilograms.

Stratcom adds that the Ukrainian soldier was found and released by a volunteer of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from New Zealand.
While Aleksey is in the hospital in the Dnieper. He was operated on and is now being treated for poisoning and dystrophy.
This is yet another act of inhumanity by Russian terrorists. Their cruel actions against Ukrainian captives have already been repeatedly recorded. We call on international organizations to respond to these crimes.
They add that the world must do everything possible to bring the terrorists to justice.
