OpEdNews Article: Article: Clintonians Flock With Vultures Over Argentina | Global politics | Scoop.it

Journalist captured in E. Ukraine released, RT stringer remains in detention | Global politics | Scoop.it
A journalist released from the ANNA news agency, who was captured along with RT contributor Graham Phillips, told RT that they were abducted by the Ukrainian army and tortured and beaten. Phillips’ fate remains unknown.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"The climate for press freedom in the volatile eastern Ukraine has deteriorated further," said the Committee to Protect Journalists, which pointed out that up to ten foreign journalists have been detained at least for a short period over the past week.

Seven journalists have also been killed while covering the unrest in eastern Ukraine - making it the deadliest country for journalists this year, according to UN statistics.
