By Daniar Mukhtarov - Trend:

Kazakh Foreign Ministry is checking information on the presence of Kazakh volunteers in Ukraine's Slavyansk city.

"We noticed a number of reports spread by several media outlets that allegedly 'there are volunteers from Kazakhstan among the militias in Slavyansk'. We believe this information is unfounded," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nurjan Aytmahanov said at a briefing on April 25.

He noted that the disseminated information indicates no specific names of people or the documents certifying the volunteers' citizenship.

"In this regard it is not possible to verify this information. But, nevertheless, we are trying to check this information together with the relevant bodies," he said.
