In the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, the regional administration and other major government buildings remain under the control of pro-Russian separatists. Local journalists have reported that people are being held hostage and tortured in the buildings. A deputy of the district council, Dmytro Verzilov, visited the administration headquarters in an attempt to learn what was happening there. He told RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service that he was seized by a group of men and thrown into a dungeon-like cellar full of other captives and released after several hours.
