Lefter and Deynega told how they were released
Sergiy Lefter, a journalist of the Polish foundation «Open Dialogue», and Artem Deynega, a streamer from Slovyansk, Donetska oblast, were released by the terrorists in Slovyansk on May 2. Russian terrorists accused Lefter of participation in the “Right Sector” and spying. A Russian freelance journalist Viktor Maistrenko was one of the people, who helped Lefter leave the city after the separatists released him, without documents, equipment, or belongings. They do not disclose all details because other people are held hostages, and activists try to help them, too. Deynega did not come to the press conference, fearing for his life.
