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.
The press service of the Khanty-Mansiysk-headquartered UTair airline has so far failed to confirm the reports. "We have no such information," a spokesperson for the company told TASS.
A spokesman for the United Nations mission in Sudan (UNMIS), Ashraf Eissa said on Monday that two Russians, employed by a UN-chartered air company, had been "seized by unknown armed men" on January 29.
"We are closely working to secure their release and safe return," the spokesman said, giving no further details.
Russia’s embassy in Sudan has confirmed information that two Russians were abducted in Sudan’s Central Darfur state.
