Russian occupiers have released the editor of the newspaper Kakhovska Zorya Zhanna Kyselyova, whom they’d previously kidnapped in temporarily occupied city of Kakhovka. This was reported by the Kakhovka city territorial community on its Facebook page.

The journalist was kidnapped on September 19 from her own apartment.


However, there is no news about Iryna Razumei, the local citizen who was kidnapped on the same day.


According to Institute of Mass Information (IMI), Zhanna Kyselyova fought against denationalization of community media, Kahovska Zorya in particular. In 2020, she became the deputy of the Kakhovka city council.


Kakhovska Zorya is a weekly regional newspaper of Kakhovka and Kherson region. It was established in 1930. It covers the issues of city and regional territorial communities’ life, local and state authorities.


It shall be reminded that earlier in Kherson region, the occupants kidnapped and later released the journalist Oleh Baturyn. And in April in Nova Kakhovka, Kherson region, russian occupiers kidnapped the journalist and poet Oleksandr Hunko.
