More and more abductions in annexed Crimea


Belbek Airforce was seized on March 22, and its commander Yuliy Mamchur taken into custody

On Sunday Dmitry Tymchuk, head of the Centre for Military and Political Research, reported that an army captain in Sevastopol, Demyanenko, had been abducted.   This follows two other abductions of military commanders.  Tymchuk earlier reported that on Sunday morning naval commander Ihor Voronchenko was abducted.  Voronchenko had effectively taken all Ukrainian military in the Crimea true to their oath to Ukraine under his control.  He is believed to be in custody in Sevastopol.  More details at: Russian troops storm Belbek airbase, arrest Commander Yuliy Mamchur
