Mariupol journalist came back from captivity and does not share how he was freed

30.05.2014, 17:50

Mykola Riabchenko, a well-known in Mariupol (Donetska oblast) journalist and reporter, who disappeared on May 6 near the town of Manhush in Donetska oblast, is currently not kept in captivity by separatists, but at home on a sick leave. Riabchenko went to Manhush on an editorial assignment after receiving information that there was a firefight there, and there went silent. His younger son called him several times and when the call was answered it was by some man who said that he was from the so-called ‘community defense’ and that they had Riabchenko. Currently Riabchenko is at home. He sustained no significant injuries. It is still unknown who held him and with what purpose.
