Two freelancers that work for "Vesti" have been released from "LPR"’s captivity

11.10.2014, 01:11

The freelance journalists working for the newspaper “Vesti” and magazine “Reporter” Serhiy Boyko and photo reporter Oleksander Harmatenko, who on September 22 were captured by “LPR”’s gunmen, on September 30 were released in Sverdlovsk (Luhanska oblast) without IDs and coats. It will be extremely difficult for them to get back home as there are a lot of checkpoints on the way that demand IDs.  

According to LPR’s gunmen, they were detained because they were making videos of classified objects.
