13.05.2014, 13:33

The journalist of the Polish foundation "Open dialogue", Serhiy Lefter, was released from captivity. IMI has confirmation for this information from several sources. At Youtube there is already a video where he tells about the details of his imprisonment. He was taken on April 15 when reporting the local news over the phone, because people who occupied city council thought he was suspicious, “a spy”. He was held and interrogated, along with three other men. Two of those men were found dead later, according to Lefter these men admitted affiliation to the “Right Sector”. Interrogations were held at night, some mercenaries or military men were beating them and asking questions about connections with Maidan and the Right Sector.
