ْ As for the Russian woman who has been trapped in the Nubian Metropolis building in Khartoum since the beginning of the conflict, unfortunately we have not been able to get them out yet. We have made more than a dozen rescue attempts so far. attempts have been made from both sides of the contact line. it is on this line of contact and therefore there is a guarantee of getting them out of there alive and healthy until the opportunity arises and we don’t want to take any risks,” said the ambassador.

As the diplomat put it, “it’s safer at the moment for them to stay outside the walls of the metropolis, but attempts to get them out of there are made every day and will continue.”
