Captives from Ukrainian forces marched guarded by militiamen through Donetsk's central square on Sunday, August 24.
The young reporters of the Crimean Telegraph newspaper were detained by Right Sector members at a checkpoint when they were returning to Crimea late on August 24.
"When people at the checkpoint stopped us, we were welcomed with words of congratulations on Ukrainian Independence Day, but when they saw the photos they lost control," photographer Vasilenko said. "The photos were the last in the camera. That day we were leaving (Donetsk)," Korolyova said.
The reporters said Right Sector members were aggressive when detaining them. "A man at the checkpoint struck me one time," Vasilenko said.
The journalists spent the first night after the detention together with prisoners of war. "We spent the first 12 hours in a basement with captured people. It was not very pleasant. The conditions were similar to those of a prison," the photographer said. "In the morning, when we got up, we were taken to more suitable premises, where a breakfast was given to us."
"At the base, we were treated very well. We were not beaten, not tortured and not tied. We had separate rooms, where we stayed for more than 24 hours," Korolyova added.
The Crimean journalists talked only with the village head out of Ukrainian authorities. After that, late on Tuesday, they were released and returned by a train to Simferopol.
