DONETSK, October 27. /TASS/. Representatives of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) have refuted Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko’s statement about the alleged release of 21 people, Lilia Rodionova, a deputy head of the DPR committee for refugees and prisoners of war, told TASS on Monday.
She said that Poroshenko’s statement that the DPR authorities had allegedly released 21 people, including 14 civilians, was not true. She said that a humanrights activist Alexander Kudinov, whom the president mentioned in his statement posted on his Twitter account, had been released by the DPR authorities four days ago.
Kudinov, a human rights activist at the moment, as he is pictured in the Ukrainian media, some time ago served in the Ukrainian riot police. The media however say nothing about why he and how he was detained in the Donetsk republic and what he was doing there.
