MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. Russian pilot Pavel Petrenko, captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan in April 2013, returned to Russia on Monday.
A jet from Kabul with Petrenko on board made a landing at Moscow’s Sheremyevo Airport.
The pilot of a Mil Mi-8 helicopter was released in late October, the Russian Foreign Ministry earlier said.
“On October 29, as a result of concerted efforts, Russian national Pavel Petrenko, the pilot of a Mi-8 helicopter that had made an emergency landing in the Afghan province of Logar, who was seized and has been held by Taliban since April 2013 in captivity, was released,” the ministry said.
