KIEV, September 8 (Itar-Tass) — Ukrainian citizens detained by anti-Gaddafi rebel forces in Libya on charges of military assistance to the former Libyan leader in a satisfactory physical condition and their lives are not in danger, Alexander Dikusarov, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry's official spokesman said Thursday.
He refuted earlier reports in the mass media that claimed the detained Ukrainians felt a shortage of foodstuffs and freshwater and were sbujected to torture.
Dikusarov confirmed that the Ukrainian diplomats accredited in Tripoli and a physician visited the detainees Wednesday to see the situation with their own eyes.
Last week, the Ukrainian government issued a note on official recognition the Transitional National Council as the only legitimate state power in Libya.
The Foreign Ministry welcomed the completion of an active phase of combat operations on Libyan territory and voiced the hope for a "conclusive termination of the active face of armed operations in Libya.
It hailed the prospects for "the final untangling of the armed conflict /between the opposing camps in Libya -- Itar-Tass/, the restoration of stability and the stelling up of political processes aimed at the rise of a renewed flourishing and democratic Libyan state.
