Today's main news on European front pages is the release of one of the eight OSCE international military observers sent by the organisation in the Eastern Ukrainian town of Slovyansk. The negotiating team was held as "prisoners of war" by pro-Russian separatist on 25 April. The man, a Swedish citizen, was freed on health grounds.
Another news worth reporting is that, from this 28 April Moldovan citizens can travel within the EU without need for a visa. The Moldovan passport has therefore become highly priced in the former Soviet republic.
