MOSCOW, August 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin has called on Ukrainian deputies to help searching for missing photo reporter Andrei Stenin.
Despite numerous appeals by Russia and international organizations, Ukraine has not given any information on his whereabouts.
“In this connection, I am repeating my call on our colleagues, the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada, to help searching for the Russian journalist,” Naryshkin emphasized.
Stenin, employed by the Rossiya Segodnya (Ria Novosti) news agency, used to work in Donetsk, Sloviansk and other cities in eastern Ukraine. He has been missing since August 5. His colleagues believe Ukraine’s law enforcers could have captured him. Ukraine’s Security Service, however, denies holding any Russian journalists in custody.
The fate of another two Russian journalists, Sergei Korenchenkov and Andrei Vyachalo, who were in the same car with Stenin, is also unknown. Their employer - the iKorpus information portal which covers the events in Ukraine - lost all contact with them after they had arrived in Snezhnoye in the country’s east.
