LNR terrorists keep Kharkiv journalist Roman Cheremsky "and four other journalists"

29.08.2014, 22:38

The Luhansk People’s Republic’ terrorists captured Roman Cheremsky, Kharkiv journalist working for the media outlet "Ukrainsky Prostir" and an activist of Kharkiv branch of Association of Ukrainian Youth. This was reported to the news agency "Interfax-Ukraine" by his brother Kostiantyn Cheremsky.

According to Kostiantyn Cheremsky, his brother Roman was captured by the separatists in the ATO zone on August 17 and is still their prisoner together with four other journalists. He received several text messages from Roman. He knows that Roman went to the Anti-Terrorist operation zone as a journalist, but he is not aware of what media outlet’s editorial assignment this trip was. 

It is believed that these other journalists are the filming crew of the channel 112. There are reasons to think they are kept in Rovenky.

Currently, the negotiations are underway about release of Roman and his brother hopes that after the weekend there will be more information about his brother.
