Irma Krat, 29, the editor-in-chief of Hidden Truth TV and the
leader of an all-female self-defense unit during the EuroMaidan Revolution that
ousted the former government and President Viktor Yanukovych, was captured around
8 p.m. on Easter Sunday, Krat’s lawyer, Oleg Veremiyenko, told the Kyiv Post on April 21.

He said she was being held with freelance
journalist Serhiy Lefter, 22, who had been detained since April 16.

Krat was “taken hostage,” Veremiyenko said, on
suspicion of torturing and killing a Berkut riot police officer, an accusation
he called “bullshit.”
