Ukrainian journalists demand to release Mariya Varfolomeyeva from «LPR» captivity

05.06.2015, 15:23

Ukrainian journalist movements and organizations address the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, head of the Security Service of Ukraine Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, international advocacy groups and diplomatic structures with a demand to take all efforts to release Luhansk-based journalist Mariya Varfolomeyeva from captivity of the so-called «LPR». As their joint appeal states, Varfolomeyeva has been kept prisoner for almost 5 months, “more than any other journalist, who were imprisoned by pro-Russian separatists”. She was taken on January 9, 2015, by armed fighters, for photographing housing buildings on a street of Luhansk. Later, the militants accused her of artillery fire correction, threatening her with 15 years of prison.
