"Right Sector" detained two Crimean journalists near Donetsk

“Yesterday, in the special operation zone near Donetsk, representatives of the Right Sector from the bus were removed correspondent Yevhen Korolev and photo correspondent Maxim Vasilenko. After several days of staying in Donetsk and other localities that are under fire, the journalists returned to the Crimea, but today there is no connection with them, ”the RIA’s editorial board reports. "News".

The queen managed to make one phone call, but she was not allowed to tell which of the checkpoints they were detained. Currently there are no data on the whereabouts of journalists.

It is worth noting that photojournalist Maxim Vasilenko is a freelancer in the French agency France-Presse and the MIA "Russia Today". This was reported by representatives of news agencies.

“Maxim Vasilenko is filming for us in Ukraine, is our freelancer,” said Alexander Shtol, head of the United Russia Photo Information Directorate.

“We can confirm that Maxim Vasilenko works for the France-Presse agency in Ukraine,” said the head of the France-Presse bureau in Moscow, Nicolas Miletic.

Later, the editor-in-chief of Russia Today, Margarita Simonyan, said that the agency demanded the speedy release of the detained journalists.

“This is not the first case of a gross violation of freedom of speech in Ukraine. Until now, the authorities of this country are silent about the fate of our photojournalist Andrei Stenin. OSCE representatives, as well as international journalistic organizations, have repeatedly spoken out against such harassment of the rights of journalists by the Kiev authorities. We demand the speedy release of the detained Russian journalists, including our freelance photojournalist, who performed his professional duty, ”said Simonyan.

Representatives of France-Presse have not yet commented on the situation.

“Now we do not give any comments. You should call us during tomorrow, right in the morning, ”the agency’s main office reported.

      Today I listened to a scout from the DPR army (he is at war with 99, he leaves every six months, he says there have been professional changes in his psyche), he said that there is almost no "right sector" there.

        he said that the "right sector" is almost gone.

        Kolomoisky is holding the right sector for Kiev now. There is now the dissolution of parliament, but new "elections" are coming. By the way, the Right Sector registered as a party !!! So what else will show their "face"

          The right sector is now PARTY? Pipe.
          Well, it can’t be, because the EU said that they are radicals ...
          psin Moldova and Transnistria:
          "A group of US military personnel was spotted at the Maximilian Pub & Grill restaurant in Chisinau. Earlier, residents of the Moldovan capital faced US military personnel with symbols of special forces on their uniforms on the streets."
          A comment by the Moldovan Defense Ministry seemed to surprise even cynical Americans. In Chisinau, they said that US troops arrived to ... repair one of the city’s gymnasiums.
          At the same time, Moldovan social network users have noted a sharp increase in tension around Transnistria.

      The Nazis can not live a day without mockery of the defenseless. And how they get captured, they immediately become such lambs. By the verdict of the tribunal, all law enforcement officers must be allowed to expend.

    I.I. Strelkov returned to New Russia. Hooray!
    "Igor Ivanovich Strelkov returned from a short-term vacation from the Russian Federation. He did not return empty-handed. He now has a special mission. He will coordinate the counter-offensive of the LPR and DPR militia forces as a military adviser. At the moment, a joint special operation of the militia forces is underway. Soon you will see everything for yourself. ! "

    Journalists are their main enemies because they tell the truth about them, about their rotten essence, their agony from impotence. And pravoseki still require a ransom, how not to cash in ???

    They do not like dill when they write the truth about them, so they recoup on correspondents as soon as possible, especially like Russian ones.
