The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry confirmed that a Ukrainian citizen was seriously injured in a road accident in Sharm-el-Sheikh and is now in a local hospital.

"We confirm that a citizen of Ukraine had a car accident in Sharm-el-Sheikh, and is now in an intensive care unit in a local hospital," director of the Foreign Ministry’s information policy department Yevhen Perebyinis said on Wednesday, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

He said that the issue of transporting the victim to a hospital in Cairo was being considered.
"Our embassy has not received any official report from the Egyptian side regarding the violation by him of local legislation," Perebyinis said.

According to media reports, in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh on the Red Sea the Egyptian security forces detained a citizen of Ukraine, who had a document identifying him as "Mujahideen of Syria," as well as Egyptian and foreign military uniforms, signs with the words "police" and black flags with religious inscriptions.

According to reports, the arrested 23-year-old Ukrainian named Rashid lived with his wife in a resort residential complex in Sharm el-Sheikh. He entered Egypt on a tourist visa on May 30 and was to leave the country on July 9.

The Ukrainian was detained after an accident involving his car. The suspect was taken to hospital with injuries, and when inspecting his car the police found a document issued by Syrian authorities in the name of a citizen of Ukraine with his photo, where the official text was crossed over and an inscription "Mujahideen, profession – journalist" had been placed.

The detainee’s wife allegedly admitted that her husband was fighting on the side of rebels in Syria. Egypt’s prosecutor’s office has launched an investigation into the matter.
