CHISINAU, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - The fate of a Moldovan woman, who has been kidnapped by Syrian militants, remains unknown, the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration reported on Wednesday.
“Women were abducted at the end of July. But the ministry has not received any information on the ransom. It maintains contacts with the governments of Syria, Belarus and Lebanon,” the press service said.
Information on their abduction has been placed on the Internet. Karina Koltsa of Moldova and Svetlana Markiyanovich of Belarus read out a statement that they had collected reconnaissance data on the Syrian anti-government forces for the Hezbollah movement, which supported the authorities.
Militants have not put forward any demands for release hostages. Journalists succeeded in contacting with Karina’s brother, Leonid Bydko. He confirmed that the sister left Tiraspol to find a job. Then she was kidnapped.
