GERMANY CONDEMNS AS ‘REVOLTING’ PARADE OF HOSTAGES BY PRO-RUSSIA SEPARATISTS

FoxNews on April 27, 2014, published an AP report on Germany’s foreign minister having condemned as “revolting” the appearance under armed guard of eight European military observers being held prisoner by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine. Excerpts below:

Frank-Walter Steinmeier says the appearance of the observers in front of reporters in the eastern city of Slovyansk was “a breach of all the rules” and violated the men’s dignity.

Steinmeier called on Russia to pressure the separatists into releasing all of the prisoners “as soon as possible.”
