Two citizens of Ukraine were found dead in a hotel room on the island of Bali in Indonesia. Serhiy Pohoreltsev, the Director of the Consular Services Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine announced this, as Interfax reports.
"Yesterday, the Department of Consular Services of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs received an appeal from a citizen of Ukraine that her parents, Ukrainian citizens, were found dead in a room in one of the hotels on the island of Bali (Indonesia), where they lived. According to the Ukrainian Embassy in Indonesia, the local police confirmed the fact of death of our citizens and began investigative actions," Pohoreltsev said.
He also noted that the bodies of deceased Ukrainians were delivered to a local hospital. They are being tested for the possible presence of a coronavirus infection of Covid-19. Test results are expected May 3. According to Pohoreltsev, in case of a negative test result, an autopsy will be performed to establish the causes of death of Ukrainian citizens.
He assured that the embassy is now in contact with Indonesian law enforcement agencies and a medical institution in order to establish the circumstances of the case, as well as to organize the repatriation of the dead.
According to Coconuts Bali news agency, two married Ukrainians lived in the Kedonganan Badung area. Police were notified of the situation immediately after the neighbors noticed that they had not left the room all day.
In addition, the local police chief said that law enforcement officers did not find any signs of violence on the bodies of the deceased.
As we reported before, 300 people from Italy, Armenia and Sweden have arrived in Ukraine via evacuation flights.
