In the east of Ukraine, representatives of the Kiev authorities (Ukraine) took a minor girl as a hostage to pressure her mother who is a law enforcement officer in the city of Lugansk. Now this part of the Lugansk Province is not under the control of the central government, but is the administrative center of the self-proclaimed “Lugansk People’s Republic” (LPR or LNR).
The Ministry of State Security of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (one of two self-proclaimed republics during the civil conflict in the East of Ukraine) was reportedly addressed by Marina Gojko, who was a servicewoman of the local law enforcement body. The woman became a victim of kidnappings methods of work of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU).
A short while ago the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) took the minor child of Marina Gojko as a hostage. The girl had been on vacation with her grandmother living in the territory controlled by Kiev.
The mother reported that SSU (the Security Service of Ukraine) officers delivered an ultimatum asking for cooperation with them and feeding them with all the classified information requested. In exchange, they promise to keep Marina’s elderly parents alive and release her daughter. (the video could be seen in Russian by follow this link)
Situation in the region with observance of human rights had been long gone far beyond the red lines by all the parties of the conflict.
However, the fact that official representatives of a government can take a minor child as a hostage for the purpose of bluntly blackmailing of the mother is highly questionable even for ISIS.
