Dzhabarov condemned Ukraine’s leaders who call their citizens terrorists. “To my mind, terrorist are those who blew up residential houses in Moscow and Buinaksk, those who seized a hospital in Budennovsk, such people as Basayev and Raduyev,” he said, adding he had never heard of any “act of terror committed by citizens.”
Journalists from the Russian television channel LifeNews, Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saichenko, were detained by Ukraine’s National Guards near Kramatorsk, Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region. The journalists last contacted their colleagues at LifeNews on Sunday, May 18.
Deputy secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council Viktoria Syumar accused them of abetting terrorism, claiming they were “members of terrorist groups.” “The country’s law enforcers are drawing corresponding documents in respect of the Russian journalists,” she said.
