KIEV, February 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s foreign ministry has confirmed that the man suspected on an attempt to skyjack a plane en route from Kharkov to Istanbul was a Ukrainian citizen.

No one was hurt. According to the latest information, the man turned himself to the police.
Earlier on Friday, the Ukrainian Security Service said that the man had been in a state of alcoholic intoxication.
