Russians hold UNIAN news agency journalist hostage
The Russian invaders are holding journalist Dmytro Khyliuk from the UNIAN (Ukrainian Independent News Agency) hostage.
According to colleagues, Khyliuk, a journalist with the Ukrainian Independent News Agency, was kidnapped by Russian soldiers in the village of Kozarovichi, in the Vyshgorod district of the Kyiv region, around the beginning of March.
On the eve of his disappearance, Dmytro wrote on social media that his village was under occupation.
According to freed residents of Kozarovichi, Dmytro is now being held in the building of a business in Dymer, another village in the Kyiv region. He was seen there by several men who had already been released.
This is not the first case where Russian soldiers have detained and kidnapped journalists, activists, and representatives of local self-government bodies, the civic activists said.
