Abducted pro-Ukrainian activist murdered

09.05.14

The body was found on Thursday of Valery Salo, head of the Prosvita Society in Krasny Lyman (Donetsk oblast).  According to Maria Oliynyk, a human rights activist from the area, Valery Salo had been abducted the day before by so-called Donetsk People’s Republic militants. She called Valery Salo a farmer who supported Ukrainian unity.  He seems to have been heading for a planned meeting of the Prosvita Cultural Society when his car was stopped.  She says that armed men beat him up and threw him into the boot of the car.  His body was found the following day in his burned out car in the Hrekivsk forest (Luhansk oblast).
