The Czech military observer who was held hostage as part of a team from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine is back in the Czech Republic. A special military flight took 41-year-old Josef Přerovský from Berlin on Saturday night after the release earlier in the day. He was accompanied on the flight by defence minister Martin Stropnický. The lieutenant-colonel said that he and other OSCE hostages had thought at times about trying to escape from their captors after being seized on April 25. Minister Stropnický admitted that at some stages there was no fresh news of the hostages and any outcome seemed possible.
