Pro-Russian Separatists Hold UN Observers Hostage


Pro-Russian Separatists in Slayvansk, Ukraine have said that 13 UN observers captured Saturday are war hostages. They claim that 3 Ukrainian officers were also captured last night.

The Organization for Security and Organization in Europe (OSCE) simultaneously sent a negotiating team to western Ukraine in order to deliberate the captives’ release. The separatists have demanded the government in Kiev to release pro-Russian activists arrested by the State’s authorities.
