OSCE officers held in Slovyansk were treated well - head of Ukrainian group of OSCE military mission

KYIV. May 3 (Interfax) - The OSCE military inspectors held in Slovyansk were treated well and their captors tried to find out what tasks they were fulfilling in the eastern regions of Ukraine, Colonel Ihor Turanskiy, the head of the Ukrainian group of the OSCE military mission and the head of the Verification Department of the Ukrainian General Staff, said.

"There are no bodily injuries, everything was fine. They fed them, gave them water, let them sleep, and treated them well," he told reporters upon arriving in the Kyiv airport Boryspil from Donetsk on Saturday.

Turanskiy said the argument for the OSCE officers' detention was that "their visit was not approved by representatives of the local population, who have their own viewpoint on the events taking place there."

Turanskiy reiterated that the captors treated Ukrainian and foreign servicemen equally, did not threaten them, and asked them why they had come to the region and what tasks they were fulfilling.

According to earlier reports, the 12 people who were held in Slovyansk, including eight OSCE military inspectors, were released on Saturday.
