Pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine detained a 35-year-old US Air Force veteran. He is the fourth known American veteran to be held captive.

Suedi Murekezi contacted his brother, Sele, on July 7, informing him that he had been falsely accused of being part of a pro-Ukraine protest and had been taken prisoner.

Suedi said he is being detained in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) along with two other American detainees, Alexander Drueke and Andy Tai Huynh.

Soon after receiving the call, Sele reached out to US officials at the embassy in Kyiv to ask for help.
