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.
