Ukrainian citizen Anhar Kochneva, who was held hostage by Syrian rebels, escaped from captivity on Monday and is already in Damascus, her former husband Dmytro Petrov informed.

"She escaped this morning. We talked with her by phone for a couple of minutes. She said that people took her to Damascus," he said.

He added that Kochneva had already contacted the Ukrainian Embassy in Syria regarding further actions. Her condition is satisfactory.

In turn, Ukrainian Embassy in Damascus refused to comment on the release of Kochneva. "We have no authority to comment on this information," the embassy staff said by telephone.
