At the request of Dmitry’s relatives, who are trying to draw attention to his situation, I have published a photo of the Peace March in Moscow on 21.09.2014.

Local activists Valentyna Chubarova and Mykola Zboroshenko carry placards demanding the release of Dmitry Potekhin. Next to them is V. Shenderovych.

Dmitry is a journalist, blogger and supporter of non-violent resistance. He has been held hostage by terrorists in Donetsk for 49 days. Leaflets explaining Dmitry’s situation were distributed during the march in Moscow.
