TUNIS, December 05, 21:51 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian diplomats who were evacuated from Tripoli will return to Libya on December 8, 2013, Russia’s charge d’affaires in Libya Leonid Frolov told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“We have bought tickets from Tunis to Tripoli,” he said. “Nine diplomats from the Russian diplomatic mission are leaving for Libya on December 8.” The Libyan side, according to Frolov, has issued all necessary entry documents.
Late on October 2, 2013, the Russian embassy in Tripoli came under attack provoked by the murder of a Libyan officer committed by Russian citizen Ekaterina Ustyuzhaninova on October 1. The assaulters broke into the territory of the Russian embassy seeking to avenge the man’s murder. Local army units forced the attackers out. No one was hurt.
Following this attack, the Libyan side said it could not guarantee safety of Russian diplomats, and it was decided to evacuate them from the country. On October 3, officers of the Russian embassy and consulate and their families arrived in neighbouring Tunisia, from where they took a plane for Moscow. Some diplomats stayed in Tunis to maintain working contacts with the Libyan side.
