MOSCOW, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Charge d’Affaires a.i. in Libya Leonid Frolov noted that Russian citizen Yekaterina Ustyuzhaninova, who is suspected of murder of a Libyan officer, is alive, but her whereabouts remain unknown.
“Unfortunately, no Russian diplomats have met her yet. The only thing that we are aware of that she is alive. We do not have an opportunity to meet her yet. Since she is not being held neither by state authorities, nor the army, nor the police, but held by a security formation in Tripoli that consists of former militants of revolutionary units, it is hard to find her,” Frolov said in an interview with Izvestia daily on Tuesday.
Frolov also noted that Russian citizens Vladimir Dolgov and Alexander Shadrov, who were sentenced to ten years and life in prison, respectively, on accusation of collaboration with Gaddafi’s troops, were transferred from the city of Zintan to a Tripoli suburb. “They are being kept not in prison, but at a small military base, where they live in trailers under guard. They are pending civil trial,” the Russian diplomat noted.
In his words, the Russian Embassy in Tripoli that is situated in the hotel will open in early February, “it is just needed to wait for a diplomatic brigade from Moscow to arrive that will settle the issues of visas”.
