Antonov: Russian embassy received no requests about US mercenaries

Washington, SANA- The Russian Embassy in Washington has so far received no requests from the US administration regarding US mercenaries, captured in Ukraine, Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said.

“There were no requests to the embassy. I do not confirm receiving a request of this kind from the US side,” Antonov was quoted by Russia Today as saying.

The US State Department spokesman, Ned Price, had claimed yesterday that his country had requested information from Russia about these mercenaries, but it had not received any response and that it was in direct contact with the Russian authorities.
