The whereabouts of citizen journalist Iryna Danilovych, who was abducted in the occupied Crimea, are unknown.

This was announced by the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmila Denisova.

"Today is the 12th day since the abduction of Ukrainian citizen Iryna Danilovych. Her whereabouts are unknown. The father and her lawyer have filed complaints with the occupation authorities regarding the abduction, but no response has been received so far," the commissioner said.

According to Iryna's parents, the ruscists told them that the woman had been arrested for 10 days for passing some "non-confidential information" to a public organization.

Iryna Danylovych worked as a nurse, was a journalist, covered the problems of the healthcare system in Crimea and shared truthful information about the war in Ukraine.

The Commissioner appealed to the UN Commission of Inquiry into human rights violations during russia's military invasion of Ukraine to take into account these facts of human rights violations in Ukraine.

As IMI reported, on April 29, in the occupied Crimea, russian security forces detained citizen journalist Iryna Danilovych. She was detained on her way from work on the road from Koktebel to Feodosia. Her house in Vladislavivka village was searched, her phone and laptop were seized.

Several public human rights organizations demanded the release of citizen journalist Iryna Danilovych, who had been abducted in Crimea.
