MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russia’s TV channel Dozhd said on Friday it cannot get in touch with its two journalists, Sergey Yerzhenkov and Vasily Polonsky, in Donetsk.
"Before disappearing, Polonsky told the editorial desk the crew had been detained by the ministry of state security of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR)," Dozhd said on its website.
According to the TV channel, the team had been accredited to work in Donetsk both with Ukraine’s Security Service and DPR ministry of information. On Thursday, the journalists interviewed former secretary of DPR Security Council Alexander Khodakovsky.
Meanwhile, Khodakovsky said he thinks the journalists "were detained for a preventive conversation because the press secretary of DPR’s Prime Minister Alexander Zakharchenko had gone beyond her authority to accredit the Dozhd journalists without Zakharchenko’s permission."
The DPR law enforcement agencies are unavailable for official comment.
