      They write that they caught a black mercenary.

      Maybe because of this mercenary they seized journalists, so that there was someone to arrange an exchange for?

        Maybe because of this mercenary they seized journalists, so that there was someone to arrange an exchange for?
        Sure, not a problem. But only after the publication of the interrogation, the procedure itself should be carried out under camera lenses. And not in a quiet place.

      However, representatives of the National Guard refuted this information, saying that such actions lay outside their competence.
      And they didn’t lie. In their competence to kill on the spot, burn, rob, rape, etc.
      And to delay and conduct an inquiry, it’s too difficult a day of such.

    I'd like to believe that Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saychenko will soon be free. We are very worried about them.
    I bow to the courage of such journalists, if it were not for them and not like these brave and desperate guys - we would not have seen or learned from the hottest spots. The camera in the hands of journalists is also a weapon - thanks to YOU ​​guys and are waiting for home.

    It's not at all clear what's going on. The photo is either purely "sticky" or staged. See for yourself the expressions on the faces of the journalists. Calm, isn't it? If their hands are tied, how do they smoke? Or are the bulls glued to the lips? And not smoking. So the question arises. How else is the fifth column disguised, even if it is from "Life News"?

    Costs of the profession ... They are also at the forefront.

    By the way, it is reported that the militia of Kramatorsk captured a black mercenary. Here's how it comments on the allegedly wounded Babai:

    “The militias of Kramatorsk have captured a black American mercenary,” Kuban Cossack Alexander Mozhaev, better known as Babay, announced this in a video interview posted on social networks.

    According to him, the Americans are participating in the military conflict in southeastern Ukraine. On the eve of self-defense, they managed to get evidence of the stay of US citizens in the Donbass: the fighters captured an African American.

    “Negroes were taken,” said Babai. “Obama, they took your coenomother!” Addressing the American president, the Kuban called on him to remove American troops from Ukraine, threatening to invade the Cossacks in the United States.

    "When we come to Kiev, God willing, and you still won't remove the troops, we will gather the Cossack army and come to visit you, and we will smash your entire Zhidomason box," he promised.

    From a message published on the website of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine:

    "Today, on May 18, Ukrainian servicemen participating in the ATO, according to the received operational information, conducted a special operation against terrorists who were preparing to shell a military airfield in Kramatorsk from a portable anti-aircraft missile system.

    Due to the confident actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the combat crew of terrorists was discovered, disarmed and captured, and the unknown, who introduced themselves as journalists and citizens of the Russian Federation, were detained and handed over to law enforcement agencies for an inquiry. These persons were in the detachment of terrorists and filmed their actions online.
    As a result of the operation, Ukrainian soldiers removed a foreign-made man-portable air defense system at the site of the terrorist firing position. Such MANPADS models are not in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    As a result of the special operation of the Ukrainian military, local civilians did not suffer. "

    A little about the fact that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine was silent here:

    "Everything will be fine. Interesting notes about the character of Igor Ivanovich Strelkov"

    A friend threw two Facebook texts on Skype, and now I can’t find them on the authors' pages.
    Strange crap. In general, here:

    Dmitry Steshin (correspondent for Komsomolskaya Pravda in Slavyansk)
    I remember, 1 of May, Strelkov:
    "There is nothing, everything is gone (I exaggerate), there is no weapon.
    Presented with three shells of civilian times,
    it is not clear from which artillery systems and what to do ... ".
    The next day, one helicopter crashes near Slavyansk, then the second ...
    I ask in the evening: "Have you adapted the shells, Igor Ivanovich, right? Have you made MANPADS from them?"
    Igor Ivanovich smiles sadly ...

    * MANPADS - portable zent missile system

    Dmitry Olshansky 42 min. · Edited ·
    I am watching the mass reaction to Strelkov’s appeal.
    The most ridiculous reaction is stupidly malevolent.
    People either do not follow the situation, or do not feel Strelkov’s character.
    But Strelkov’s character, meanwhile, is easy to understand.
    This is such a sad, pensive man who slowly walks around the enemy camp and
    repeats melancholy: everything is complicated ... everything is bad ... we are few ... there are few chances ...
    superior enemy forces ... well, if necessary, we will die here ...
    Suddenly a grand sharrrrah is heard!
    The enemy camp is scattered into one hundred thousand small piglets.
    The sad man smiles for a second, but then the melancholy returns,
    he again throws his Lermontov overcoat over his shoulders and goes off into the distance.
    Where everything will be very bad again.

    We bring to your attention a video of the rough treatment of the Ukrainian military with kidnapped lifenews journalists.

    The military allegedly found with a man who was detained with reporters Grom ("Thunder") - a Polish man-portable air defense system designed to engage low-flying air targets in oncoming and catch-up courses. It looks more like the complex was taken for props and television pictures from mercenaries - Poles, who according to reliable information are fighting in the vicinity of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.

    Yesterday it was reported that LifeNews journalists Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saychenko were detained by the National Guard of Ukraine near Kramatorsk.

    The management of the News Media holding appealed to the Russian Foreign Minister with a request to assist in their release.

    "In connection with the detention of LifeNews journalists by the Ukrainian military in Kramatorsk on the evening of May 18, Lavrov contacted the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Swiss President Didier Burkhalter and urged him to urgently use all the possibilities of this organization for the immediate release of Russians," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement released on Monday ...

    "The corresponding demarches were also taken before the leadership of the OSCE Secretariat in Vienna and at the headquarters of the OSCE mission in Ukraine in Kiev. The Russian Foreign Ministry will continue to seek an early settlement of the situation around Russian journalists," the Foreign Ministry added.

    The report notes that the OSCE chairman assured that he will immediately deal with this issue.
