KIEV, February 03, (ITAR-TASS). Police stations in Kiev have received nine reports on missing people since the outbreak of disturbances and riots in Kiev at the end of last November, the press service of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said.
A total of five people of that number have been tracked down, it said.
“One of the sources of information on the individuals reported missing during the past two months an Internet page run by the volunteers of the so-called Euro-Maidan,” the Interior Ministry said in its report. “As of February 3, they were searching for 36 ‘missing people’.”
“Along with it, police stations have received only nine reports and five of the people initially reported missing have been found, while the search for the rest is in progress,” the report said.
The ministry thus refuted the claims by radical nationalistic opposition activists that as many as sixty people went missing during the manifestations.
