MOSCOW, November 25 (Itar-Tass) —— The Tajik security services demanded to give two airplanes An-72 to them for free or at the understated price right after the detention of the pilots of the Rolkan air company, Anatoly Kucherena, a lawyer of Russian pilot Vladimir Sadovnichy, told a press conference on Friday.
“At first (after the detention at the airport) about three days they (pilots) passed at the office of some high-ranking officer of the Tajik security services, they were not even detained, just deprived of freedom illegally, and the security services were talking constantly, bargaining that they should give away the airplanes,” the lawyer underlined.
