9 Luhansk residents have disappeared in the last 3 days
Obzor.lg.ua reports worrying numbers of disappearances, probably abductions. In two or three cases the men are known to have been abducted, and it seems likely that all the disappearances are the work of Kremlin-backed militants. They are hopefully being held hostage or forced to work for the militants, however concern must be high after Alexander Reshetnyak, a EuroMaidan activist, died of terrible injuries including a gunshot wound to the back after being abducted by the terrorists.
In the following cases, the men left home, in most cases, going to work, and did not return. There has been no contact with them.
