MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. Twenty-four Russian nationals have been detained at Seoul’s airport. The Russian embassy will offer all necessary assistance to them, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
"According to preliminary information, twenty-four Russian citizens have been detained at Seoul’s airport," the ministry said. "Sixteen of them arrived by a Sibir air company’s plane, six - by an Aurora plane, one arrived from Vietnam, and one - from Uzbekistan."
"The South Korean side said the reason for detention was violation of migration laws," the ministry said. "The Russia embassy will help settle the situation and will offer all necessary assistance to the Russian nationals."
