YEKATERINBURG, February 3. /TASS/. The transport department of Russia’s Interior Ministry in the Urals region is verifying reports whether the Russians abducted in Sudan work for the UTair airline, the department’s press service head said on Tuesday.
"The transport police are conducting checks into the media reports of the abducted Russians being employees of UTair. This information is being clarified," Elena Yepimahova said.
