The evacuation of Russian citizens from Iraq will be completed Friday using Emergency Ministry airplanes
An Il-62 took off to Baghdad this morning at 7:25 local time. It is going to carry 125 passengers back to Russia. Yesterday, an Il-76 with 85 Russians, four Ukrainians and one citizen of Belarus on board landed at the Ramenskoe airport on the outskirts of Moscow. All were specialists employed by the company Interenergoservice and were working in Iraq under contract. In addition, yesterday's flight brought home the bodies of two Russians, Viktor Dynkin and Vyacheslav Ovsiannikov, killed in a May 26 attack, as well as five of those wounded. Two critically wounded employees of Interenergoservice could not be moved and remain at an American military hospital following surgery. Following the evacuation, some 20 employees of the energy company will remain in Iraq. They will be responsible for temporary closing-down of the unfinished sites. Several of the specialists will be helping the seriously wounded employees. An Emergency Ministry team has also stayed behind in Baghdad to resolve logistical problems associated with the evacuation of the remaining Russians. Ten Russian journalists representing various newspapers and television stations have likewise remained. The decision to evacuate was taken by the direction of Interenergoservice at the insistence of the Russian Foreign Ministry following the Wednesday attack in Baghdad on a bus transporting company employees. Two Russians were killed and eight wounded
