Journalist: My Russia jail fear
A British journalist being detained in Russia has said his greatest fear is being kept away from his friends and family.
Videographer Kieron Bryan, 29, from Devon, was part of a group of 30, which included six Britons, who were held when armed Russian officials boarded their vessel, the Arctic Sunrise, last month .
The boat and Greenpeace protesters were taken from the Arctic's Pechora sea, near oil company Gazprom's platform, to the port of Murmansk.
The six Britons, including Mr Bryan, who was documenting the protest, were being investigated for piracy, but are now charged with hooligansm.
In a letter to the Sunday Times, Mr Bryan wrote: " My greatest fear is being kept from my family, my friends and my girlfriend for any great length of time.
"In many ways I'm lucky I don't have children who depend on me, but the fear of losing years of my life and the opportunity to perhaps start a family is terrifying.
"The hardest moment was the first night in prison - none of us knew where we were or what conditions the detention held, or whether we would be separated, left to navigate the unknown alone.
"Being shown to my cell and introduced to a couple of strangers was frightening, to say the least."
