MOSCOW, November 12, 12:15 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Embassy in Manila (the Philippines) is trying to clarify the fate of a Russian diver missing after Super Typhoon Hayian hit the country, the third secretary of the Russian Embassy, Alexei Ilyuviyev, told Tass by telephone on Tuesday.“The Russian national could have been on Samar Island during the typhoon, but there is no exact information. Possibly he had left the island before the typhoon hit. Embassy staffers together with Philippine agencies make efforts to clarify his fate,” the diplomat said.
As for the other Russian tourists holidaying on the main resort islands of Cebu and Mactan, practically all of them have got in touch. According to the embassy, there are about 55 such tourists. They feel well, stay at their hotels, and some even intend to continue the holiday. “There has been no information of injured tourists,” Ilyuviyev said.
Flights have resumed between Manila and Cebu and Manila and Mactan, so all those who want can fly to the capital of the Philippines.
At the same time, the diplomat did not rule out that in case of necessity a plane of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations could airlift Russians directly from Cebu.
