Pro-Ukrainian blogger arrested in militant-held Luhansk

As locals say, he was arrested because of showing reality in the lives around the occupied city

Russian-backed militant arrested a pro-Ukrainian blogger Eduard Nedeliayev in the occupied city of Luhansk. He is allegedly accused of a cooperation with Ukrainian secret services and the battalion "Aidar".

As the so-called "Ministry of state security" of the non-recognized "Luhansk people's republic" claims, the man was posting extremist materials on social media.

Luhansk militants shared a video of his arrest and a search of his apartment. They found many radio-transmitting types of equipment and explained the facts of Nedeliayev's subversive activities - he was allegedly using the revealed devices for spying and conveying data to Ukrainian secret services.

However, as Luhansk residents write on their social networks about reasons of the arrest, the blogger was showing "the real life" in Luhansk and was not afraid to express his pro-Ukrainian position.
