KIEV, February 07, 22:55 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s foreign ministry is identifying the citizenship of a man suspected of a skyjacking attempt in Turkey, the ministry said on its website on Friday.
“The Turkish side reported an incident aboard a plan making a flight from Kharkov to Istanbul,” the ministry said. “One of the passengers, who, according to preliminary information, might be a Ukrainian citizen, made an attempt to force the crew to steer the pane to Russia’s Sochi. The crew sent out a distress signal and landed in the Istanbul airport.”
“The Ukrainian embassy in Turkey maintains contacts with the Turkish law enforcement agencies. A Ukrainian diplomat from the consulate general in Istanbul is at the airport to establish the citizenship of the suspect and probe into the details of the incident,” the ministry said.
According to some sources, the man might have been in a state of alcoholic intoxication.
