MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. A second crew member of Russia's oil tanker detained in Libya near a month ago has been freed, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
"Russia keeps pressing for the release of all crew of the Mekhanik Chebotarev oil tanker, currently under arrest in Tripoli," the Foreign Ministry said. "Efforts by senior officials of Russia's Chechen Republic proved very helpful. The released young man, sailor Pavel Magatin, 19 is free and safely back home."
The Foreign Ministry also said diplomatic efforts would continue for securing the release of the tanker's other crew members still in detention: "This goal remains our unconditional priority."
On October 9, the Foreign Ministry announced that the tanker's female cook, Natalya Klyuchnikova, was set free.
The Mekhanik Chebotarev oil tanker flying the Russian flag with a crew of 11 on board was detained off Libya's coast on September 17 on the suspicion of smuggling and taken to the port of Tripoli.
