A Ukrainian official on Thursday said Russia had captured another Ukrainian mayor from a town in northeastern Ukraine.
Syniehubov said Russia “kidnapped” the mayor from his workplace.
“We have news today that [the Russians] captured the head of the Velykoburlutska community, Viktor Nikolaevich Tereshchenko,” Syniehubov said, per CNN. “Victor Nikolaevich was kidnapped simply from his workplace and taken to the local police station. They are holding him and will not release him.”
