Residents of the Ukrainian city of Melitopol took to the streets of the city to protest the “kidnapping” of Russian forces, the city’s mayor.

The demonstrators surrounded the headquarters of the local authorities, in the heart of the city, demanding the immediate release of Ivan Fedorov, the mayor of Melitopol.

Ukrainian officials released video footage on Friday showing Fedorov being taken away from his office while he was blindfolded.

In a message to his people, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of “going to a new level of terrorism”.
