Some Russian asylum seekers expressed outrage of the ill-treatment of a single, 64-year-old woman from the Ukraine who was carried away by force from the Eastern Finnish Imatra asylum reception center.
“This is not the way to great a human,” said a Russian asylum seeker who got in touch with Migrant Tales. “We are not animals. We have human rights, too.”
So what justified the use of such force by the police?
Apparently, the woman, refused to go to the hospital because she fears deportation to Russia.
“There was another case [at the same asylum reception center] of a Russian woman called Ludmila who was sent to the hospital, [allegedly] drugged and then deported to Russia,” she said. “Later on she appeared in Turkey after being forced to return to Russia.”
