Russian photographer Andrei Stenin, missing since early last month, has been found dead in Ukraine.

The RIA-Novosti press agency he works for says it turns out he wasn't a prisoner, but has been dead for a month.

Russia opened a probe in mid-August into the disappearance of the photographer and believed that he had been taken by Ukrainian authorities.

Three other Russian journalists were killed in Ukraine in June and an Italian photographer and his Russian assistant were killed at the end of May.
