MOSCOW, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow will not leave unnoticed the verdict of the US court, pronounced in the case of Russian air pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, and will seek his return home, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.

"This verdict in the case of Konstantin Yaroshenko raises the most serious questions,” the diplomat said. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly made statements to the U.S. side about the impermissible situation and unacceptable and illegitimate nature of the arrest of a Russian citizen in a third country."

In fact, it was an instance of kidnapping of a Russian citizen by a U.S. secret service, and of physical and psychological pressure on him.

"This calls into question all the grounds on which the lawsuit was based," the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Moscow "will not leave this affair without attention and it will draw the appropriate conclusions in the context of bilateral relations."

"We will seek the return of Yaroshenko to his home country, using international mechanisms,” Lukashevich said. “We will be defending his civil rights, including those to contacts with lawyers and the family."
