The first deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Stepan Gavrish denies possibility of inclusion of relatives of seamen of Faina in group of their maintenance of Kenya to Ukraine.
He told about it in the comment to the correspondent of the UNIAN.
According to Gavrish, requirements of relatives of seamen about inclusion in such group of people to whom they trust, will be considered.
At the same time, it denies possibility of inclusion in group structure directly relatives of seamen.
According to the first deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, especially technically it will be difficult to organize quickly flight to Kenya groups of people which have no corresponding visas. He added that right after return of crew members to Kiev their relatives will be able to meet them.
Also Gavrish noted that hardly representatives of the Ukrainian power will be able to fulfill the requirement of relatives not to conduct any medical examinations, consultations of seamen with psychologists after arrival in Kenya. According to him, there is a settled international practice which provides medical examination of victims in similar situations. "The state has to provide health of these people", - Gavrish told.
Thus it rejected suspicions of relatives about possible attempts to have psychological impact on seamen through the corresponding experts. At the same time, Gavrish added that crew members, of course, have the right to refuse rendering medical care.
Today, on February 6, on a press - conferences relatives of seamen of Faina made the demand as much as possible to coordinate with them formation of group of escort of seamen during return to Ukraine. They oppose categorically inclusion in structure of such group of state "physicians" and "psychologists". Instead, according to them, surely the structure of group of maintenance has to include people to whom relatives of seamen, and also directly someone from relatives of crew members trust.
The vessel Faina was captured by pirates on September 25 last year at coast of Somalia. As a part of vessel crew - 17 citizens of Ukraine.Onboard Faina there are 33 tanks T-72, grenade launchers, antiaircraft installations and ammunition which Ukraine sold to Kenya.
On February 4 the Somali pirates received 3,2 million dollars of repayment for the Ukrainian bulk carrier with tanks and other arms on a board and on February 5 left a vessel.
We will remind also that relatives of seamen accused the authorities of Ukraine in criminal omission concerning release their native from piracy captivity.
