In Luhanska oblast, the reporter of the TV channel "112 Ukraina" Roman Hnatiuk has gone missing. This was reported on the TV channel’s website.
Roman Hnatiuk was sent there on an editorial assignment to visit the crash site of the Malaysia Airlines airplane and cover the work of the OSCE experts on site. The connection with him was lost on August 1.
At the time of the last communication with him, Hnatiuk was moving on the road from the town of Uspenky (Luhanska oblast) in the direction of Donetsk.
