Key Ukrainian anti-government activist Dmytro Bulatov has turned up alive eight days after his disappearance.

Bulatov says he was abducted, tortured and had part of his ear cut off by men with Russian accents, before he was dumped in the countryside outside Kyiv.

“I was crucified, nailed. They cut my ears and face. And I have wounds all over my body. But thank God, I’m alive,” he said as he showed off his wounds to reporters, according to Euronews.

After he was abandoned in freezing temperatures on the night of January 30, he managed to walk to a nearby village where he telephoned friends who took him back to Kiev.

Dmytro Bulatov, the 35-year-old spokesman for the Automaidan protest group, was reported missing on January 23 --  just after the abductions of two other opposition activists, one of whom was later found dead in a forest near the capital showing signs of being tortured.
