PRETORIA, October 22 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian sailors, who were captured in Nigeria a week ago, are safe and sound, the Russian Embassy in Nigeria continues to work actively for their soonest release.

“It is clear from a reliable source that the sailors are safe and sound, and the treatment with them is normal,” Russian Charge d’Affaires ad Interim Alexander Chernov told Itar-Tass on Monday.

On Monday in the previous week the pirates attacked the tugboat Bourbon Liberty 249, which belongs to the French company Bourbon, and took hostage the command of the crew consisting of six Russians and one Estonian citizen, in the oil region of the Niger delta.

“Now a delicate process of establishing contacts with the hostage takers continues,” Chernov noted.

“The Russian embassy jointly with the Nigerian side and representatives of the shipowner continue to take some steps for a soonest release of the sailors,” he underlined.
