15.09.2014, 23:56

On September 9, the freelance photographer Maksym Voytenko was detained by the Ukrainian military on one of the checkpoints in Mariupol (Donetska oblast) for identification. After a questioning, the photographer was released after seven hours.

He forgot to get his accreditation in time with the Security Service of Ukraine and went to make photos of the checkpoint without any accreditation. So, the soldiers thought he was spying on them, and detained him. Later they handed him to the military intelligence for interrogation. He was interrogated, searched, and released later that day and was warned to abstain from such actions
