In Slovyansk, journalist Ruslan Kukharchuk was interrogated with plastic bag on his head and threats to kill

13.05.2014, 12:46

Journalist Ruslan Kukharchuk from association «Novomedia» stayed 13 hours as a prisoner of terrorists in Slovyansk. He told about this through his Facebook account.

  He was taken and interrogated not because of his actions, but just because he was a Ukrainian journalist from Kyiv. He says only Russian and other foreign journalists work in the city, Ukrainian ones are not allowed. After interrogation with threats and beating, he was released, his belongings and money returned to him, and he left the city by train. He thinks they let him go due to the desire of separatists to improve their image.
