Brother of accused of terrorism in Crimea Ukrainian Panov says he was kidnapped

Brother of accused of terrorism in Crimea Ukrainian Panov says he was kidnappedYevhen Panov is so far the only man that Russia has officially named among the several arrested alleged ‘terrorists'. Moscow claims that Panov, born in Zaporizhia, works for Ukraine's Intelligence service, the agency which trained the so-called sabotage group and, ultimately, organised the ‘terror acts.

Russia media released images of Panov, escorted by FSB. There are bruises on his face.

According to the Kremlin, Panov has been interrogated and ‘is making a confession". Ukraine, in turn, categorically denies that Panov is a member of the Intel service.

Igor Kotelianets says he is the brother of the arrested man. He has a different version of what has happened.

‘I still cannot believe that this is real. My brother has been kidnapped. There is no other way for him to end up in Crimea' Kotelianets posted on Facebook.

After Russian aggression started, Panov joined the ranks of the army. Upon his return from the conflict zone, he became a technician at the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia while being a volunteer and helping the servicemen.

"He would never go to Crimea. Yevhen always said that Crimea was gone and he was indifferent towards this fact", Kotelianets says in an interview with Ukrainian media outlet Censor.net.ua.

Kotelianets tells in an interview with Ukrainian media outlets, prior to the incident his brother was going to spend his time with friends and come back home Monday, but he never did. Later his family found out he had been arrested in Crimea.

Russian media claim, overall seven members have been detained in Crimea, including several locals. Moscow has yet to reveal the names of the other prisoners.
