LifeNews journalists Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saichenko were detained by Ukraine’s National Guard near Kramatorsk (Donetsk region). Attempts to get in touch with them have failed since then. The reporters last contacted the editorial staff at 13:50 Moscow time on May 18.
Earlier on Monday, Deputy Secretary of the Ukrainian Council for National Security and Defence, Viktoriya Syumar, accused the detained journalists of being “part of terrorist groups,” saying “law enforcement agencies are now preparing findings concerning Russian journalists”.
