The group of western military observers taken hostage by pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine have been freed.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe says all 12 members of the group have been released.

The move follows comments President Obama made Friday, stressing to Russia that the continued detention of the observers was both "disgraceful" and "inexcusable."

They'd been held in eastern Ukraine since April 25th.
