He said it was not yet possible to establish stable telephone contact with special correspondent Maxim Gritsenko and cameraman Vyacheslav Amelyutin, who had been detained at the Tallinn airport’s passport control desk earlier on Friday. “We are taking all possible measures to clarify the situation, including through diplomatic channels. We hope this situation is simpler than the previous ones, since there are no combat operations in Estonia,” Pimanov said, referring to numerous reports on arresting TV reporters in Uktaine.
Maxim Dodonov, Zvezda’s director of news broadcasting, told ITAR-TASS earlier on Friday that Zvezda had managed to get in touch with one of the two men. “Maxim (Gritsenko, a special correspondent) picked up to say he could not speak,” he said, adding that the channel had got in touch with the Zvezda crew driver who confirmed that the two journalists had been detained. According to the driver, Gritsenko called him in the morning to say that they had been detained at the airport immediately after arrival and their documents had been seized.

Such get-togethers have repeatedly been criticized and condemned by many countries: in line with the conclusion of SS chapter of the Nurnberg Tribunal Judgment, it is impossible to single out any SS division that had not taken part in criminal activities.
