KIEV, September 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has confirmed the capture of 23 Ukrainians in Libya.
“I can confirm this information,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Dikusarov told Itar-Tass on Monday, September 5.
He said that one of the captured Ukrainians had been freed earlier.
Several mass media said earlier in the day that armed groups of the Libyan National Transitional Council detained about two dozen Ukrainians suspected of military aid to the Gaddafi regime.
They have been charged with fighting on the side of Gaddafi’s troops as snipers.
The Ukrainians have been held at one of the training centres in Tripoli for several days. They have denied the charges and claim they were working as cooks and oilmen.
