MOSCOW, July 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow insists on the immediate release of RT and Anna-news reportes detained in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"The Ukrainian authorities’ purposeful provocation against international journalists demonstrates official Kiev’s campaign against mass media seeking to provide truthful information about the real events in the east of Ukraine," the Foreign Ministry added.
“A new encroachment on the freedom of mass media has taken place in Ukraine,” the ministry said.
“Overnight from July 22 to July 23, four reporters, including Graham Phillips, a freelancer for the Russia Today channel who is a British national, and a cameraman for the Anna-тews agency disappeared in the area of combat actions in Ukraine’s east,” it said, adding that “they are believed to have been taken captive by the Ukrainian military."
