Trial of famous Ukrainian swimmer Oleg Lisogor will be held next week in Liberia, director of information policy department of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine Yevhen Perebyinis told a briefing.

 "In order to clarify circumstances of the case involving citizens of Ukraine Lisogor and Slipchenko, our diplomatic mission in Senegal sent a note to the Liberian party to promptly inform the Ukrainian diplomatic mission of the raised issues. We did not get response from them so far," Perebyinis said.

He noted that a representative of Ukraine had a conversation with Lisogor in Liberia, and the fact of initiating "a case on suspicion of detention of a citizen of Ukraine in Monrovia" was confirmed.

According to Perebyinis, the court hearing in this case will be held next week.

He added that Lisogor has a lawyer and denies charges against him, "which, he says, are based on information spread by Slipchenko".

Perebyinis also stressed that now Lisogor is in his home in Liberia.
