Kyiv, Ukraine

The Armed Forces of Ukraine detained in Kupyansk (Kharkiv region of Ukraine) seven students of the local medical college from Sri Lanka and took them to an unknown destination, said the head of the military-civilian administration (CAA) of the region Vitaly Ganchev. According to him, the authorities learned about this from local residents.

“Considering the well-known methods of work of the Ukrainian special services, we do not exclude provocations against the military-civilian administration of the Kharkiv region and the Russian Federation”,— Ganchev noted. In his opinion, foreigners are very likely to be used “to fabricate regular fakes, testimonies by analogy with Bucha and Izyum.”

In order to draw the attention of the international community to the incident, the CAA will inform the Sri Lankan embassy in Russia about this, he added.

The Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry said that it demanded that the Ukrainian side confirm or deny the information about the kidnapping of students.


RBC sent a request to the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Russia.

The day before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that seven students of the Kupyansky Medical College from Sri Lanka were captured by Russian soldiers in March and held in the basement, and the Ukrainian military rescued them.

In September, Ganchev announced the evacuation of the population of Izyum, Kupyansk and Veliky Burluk due to the shelling of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and on September 10, military officers Alexander Kots and Yevgeny Poddubny, as well as DPR First Deputy Minister of Information Daniil Bezsonov, announced the withdrawal of allied troops from Izyum (Kots also spoke about the departure of the military from Balakleya and Kupyansk).

On September 12, Ganchev explained that in the Kharkiv direction the number of Ukrainian troops exceeded the number of Russian troops by eight times and the decision to withdraw troops was made to preserve personnel.
