Ukrainian Liudmila Surzhenko was released from Donbas militant captivity, as Deputy Head of Luhansk Oblast Yuriy Klymenko wrote on Facebook.

He informed that Liudmila was detained by militants on July 13, when she was crossing the inter-entity boundary line in Stanytsa Luhanska, for not complying with their commands. The woman has had difficulty hearing since childhood and she uses hearing aid device, which ran out of power at the moment.

“Since then LNR pressured the Ukrainian citizen, including physical force (her finger was injured with pliers) so that they make a video with her “confession” in working for Ukrainian intelligence,” he wrote.

On Saturday, July 19, Surzhenko was released and she managed to cross the boundary line in Stanytsa Luhanska by herself. According to Klymenko, the woman is traumatized, and she received the necessary medical aid.

He also added that the regional government is preparing an address to international organizations and courts on human rights violation.
