.VIENNA, 25 April 2014 OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatović today expressed concern about the disappearance in Donetsk of Julia Shustraya and Mikhail Pudovkin, a journalist and a cameraman with LifeNews.

I am very concerned by repeated attacks and disappearances of journalists. Journalists must be allowed to report freely and their safety ensured by all those in charge, said Mijatović.

I sure hope the Russian-funded thugs do not kill them
Al Qaeda in Ukraine has apparently kidnapped some German military observers today. This could get interesting.
OSCE mission people were kidnapped. Three German soldiers, one German translator and observers from Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden and Denmark.
