MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. Publisher of Russian news website MediaZona and participant of an art group Voina Pyotr Verzilov and three other Russians have been arrested in South Sudan, Russian blogger Ilya Varlamov wrote on his website.
"We arrived at the airport of Kapoeta to fly to Juba, the capital of South Sudan. Then some military or local secret service agents arrived, who started searching our luggage. And when they saw a remote control of a drone and they seized my drone at the airport in the city of Entebbe in Uganda. And for some reason they decided that we flew the drone, although we did not do this, and finally they got us off the plane and detained, and now we are in an unknown department," the blogger wrote.
The blogger also said that the Russians’ cell phones could be seized. "We are accused of lacking the permission from the wild nature ministry, which was never needed," he said in his video message.
