Ukrainian citizens Yevhen Fomenkov and Oleksandr Sanpiter, who were captured and detained in Iraq back in July 2017, have finally returned home. This was reported by the Office of the President of Ukraine.
"I welcome Oleksandr and Yevhen at home. I welcome their families - they will finally be able to celebrate Christmas all together. I want every Ukrainian to know: we remember about everyone who is illegally detained in other countries. And we are doing everything possible so that they can return to their homeland as soon as possible," said President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
It is reported that the process of the liberation was personally coordinated by the President himself. In turn, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba assured that the Ukrainian state would never abandon its citizens, and that principle was adamant.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian blogger Mykhailo Oreshnikov was detained in Indonesia at the request of the National Central Bureau of Interpol of the Interior Ministry of the Russian Federation.
