MOSCOW, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russia continues to seek for a release of Russian citizens, which are being kept at the Libyan prison, Spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“At all stages of this tragedy we do not stop the efforts to seek for solutions to the problem of our compatriots. These are two our citizens – Shadrov and Dolgov, which the Libyan military court sentenced to various terms in prison,” Lukashevich said.
The Russian Embassy in Tripoli “continues to raise the problem of a release of Russian citizens, discusses it very actively and in the way of pressure” in the contacts with the Libyan authorities, including the Foreign Ministry, the military prosecutor’s office, he said. The diplomat recalled that the new government was inaugurated in Libya on November 14. “In this respect, we will continue to intensify the work with the structures concerned in order to ensure the soonest comeback of Russian citizens to the homeland,” Lukashevich pledged.
