Militia kidnaps the observers
Three observers were kidnapped from election station No. 87 in Lutugino of the Lugansk region. A militia officer checked their documents, and then six brawny men forced the observers into two cars. Two of them were released at a distance of 7 kilometers from the village of Stepanovka of the Perevalskiy district. They were deprived of dictaphones, video camera, cell phones and almost all money. The lot of third observer Evgeniy Voytovich is not known until now.
