Zhytomir journalist taken hostage in Donetsk oblast


Bohdan Lysenko, a freelance journalist from Zhytomir has been taken hostage. According to Telekritika’s sources who refused to give their names out of considerations for the journalist’s safety, Lysenko was at a training base of the Russian battalion “Vostok”. 

Negotiations are underway to secure his release.  His wife confirms that there has been no contact with him since Friday. Lysenko’s colleagues are concerned that he may be in particular danger as a black journalist.
