A Russian television channel said on Wednesday it had lost contact with a British journalist reporting from conflict-torn eastern Ukraine.
RT said on its website it had been unable to reach Graham Phillips since the early hours of Wednesday after he went to cover intense fighting around Donetsk airport.
The channel said it received a text message from Phillips saying "All is fine" at around 2:00am, after which contact was lost.
RT's editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan, posted a link to the story on her Twitter account, saying "our stringer Graham Phillips has gone missing in Ukraine."
RT said it had warned Phillips not to go to the airport since it was "extremely dangerous" but had understood from his social networking posts that he had gone anyway.

I wonder if he had announced his intention to resign. /s
Same guy was detained and released last month. I would have gone home.
