Gaddafi nurse leaves Brovary because of journalists, according to neighbors
Halyna Kolotnytska, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's personal nurse, has left her flat in the town of Brovary, Kyiv region, where she went to live after returning from Libya, according to her neighbors.
One of her neighbors told a correspondent of Interfax-Ukraine that Kolotnytska had avoided contact with the reporters who were crowding at her door.
She got so tired of it, that they [Kolotnytska and her daughter Tetiana] left," the neighbor said. According to her, the nurse and her daughter left the flat on Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, another neighbor said that Kolotnytska had recently bought another flat in Brovary, where she could be now.
In addition, according to the woman, Halyna Kolotnytska has a private house in a village in Brovary district, Kyiv region. "She may be there," the neighbor said.
According to a correspondent of Interfax-Ukraine, the woman's flat is located on the ground floor, its windows are latticed and closed, and the doorbell does not work.
Kolotnytska's neighbors said she didn't talk to anybody and was asking to be left alone.
Dozens of journalists, including foreign reporters, were keeping vigil outside the entrance of Kolotnytska's flat in Brovary on Tuesday night. But most of them had left by Wednesday morning.
Halyna Kolotnytska, a Ukrainian woman who worked as a nurse for the Libyan leader, arrived in Kyiv on the Defense Ministry's plane on Sunday, February 27. From Boryspil Airport she went to Brovary, a suburb of Kyiv, where her 20-year-old daughter, Tetiana, a student of the Foreign Language Department of Kyiv Shevchenko National University, lives in a small flat.
WikiLeaks earlier published a classified report by U.S. Ambassador to Libya Gene Cretz implying that Gaddafi had a Ukrainian nurse, who was his mistress.
Tetiana Kolotnytska said earlier that her mother had left for Libya nine years before, worked first at a hospital and then joined Gaddafi's staff.
