By Aleksandar Vasovic SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - A Ukrainian journalist being held by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine was brought out by her captors on Monday and told reporters she was being questioned but not mistreated. Irma Krat, 29, emerged briefly from the Ukrainian state security service building in Slaviansk, where she is held, to tell journalists, a day after she was detained: "Conditions are OK. It is a bit cold, but they are giving me food, water." She said she was not aware of a second Ukrainian journalist reported to have been held there since last week. A member of the local militia holding her said Krat, who runs an online news site, was suspected of involvement in the mistreatment of riot policemen and a Russian journalist who were seized by activists during the "Euromaidan" protests in Kiev that led to the fall of the Moscow-backed president in February.
