Facebook blocked a post of Stanislav Aseyev, former hostage of militia of Donetsk Popular Republic (DPR), who made public some photos and passports details of key war criminals at the secret “Isolation” prison. Facebook referred to infringe of the community regulation, as Aseyev said ton his page in Facebook, as ZMINA human rights center reported.

"The Russians promptly complained about the publication about persons of “Isolation” who were Russian citizens, and Facebook razed my post. But that does not matter, because the information is appeared in almost all national media. However, such actions prove once again that the "Isolation" issue is becoming more and more substantial and problematic for the Russian Federation, "he wrote.

It will be recalled that militants of the self-proclaimed DPR seized the “Izolyatsiya” art factory in June 2014 and set up a prison. Stanislav Aseyev had been placed in, and in December 2019, he was released from captivity.

In January 2021, some unknown people began to publish photos of "Isolation" in an anonymous Telegram channel, Aseyev confirmed the authenticity of the images. Donetsk militiamen declared that attached these pictures to criminal proceedings.

At the end of March 2021, the journalist himself published on the social network some photos and passport data of three key war criminals from "Isolation", who were Russian citizens. Their identities were established thanks to the investigative journalism website Bellingcat.
