Ukraine Editor Missing

KIEV — The editor of an Internet newsletter critical of the Ukrainian government is missing, his publication and police said Monday.

Heorhiy Gongadze, 31, failed to arrive at his home in Kiev on Saturday night, according to Gongadze’s publication, Ukrainska Pravda.

Gongadze has complained to Ukraine’s chief prosecutor that police allegedly were harassing him and his colleagues at Ukrainska Pravda.

Legislator Hryhoriy Omelchenko demanded that parliament officially request police information on Gongadze’s disappearance.

"Journalists are being killed and beaten, media outlets are being destroyed, journalists go missing under mysterious circumstances, but law enforcement bodies pretend that nothing is happening," Omelchenko said.
