As reported by Censor.NET citing Krym.Realii, according to battalion commander, his mother was detained at store's entrance:
"She called me and said that two unknown persons, allegedly FSB officers, had forced her into a car. They warned her to not even try to resist. Otherwise, some special unit would arrive and take her in for questioning anyway."
Krasnov's mother was questioned within a criminal case brought against him under Article 282 of the Russian Criminal Code (instigation of hatred or enmity through an attitude to a social group committed via mass media).
He also says Russian special services have been putting pressure for a few months already, affecting his mother's health considerably. "However, it now looks problematic to take her to the mainland - occupation special services made her write a pledge not to leave the peninsula," he said.
"In fact, she is being held hostage there. It means she can no longer move to Ukraine's mainland," Krasnov says. He calls on public to help: "What we really need now is maximum publicity. I would like to ask journalists and social activists to help us, support me and my family," he said.
