A Ukrainian nurse whose employment by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was famously described in a leaked diplomatic cable is trying to avoid the media's glare upon her departure from the North African nation.
Galyna Kolotnytska, who returned to Ukraine over the weekend amid the uprising in Libya, spent Sunday and Monday at her apartment in Brovary, about 15 miles east of Ukraine's capital, Kiev. Footage from Russian TV channels on Monday showed reporters gathered outside, trying but failing to get her to talk to them.
CNN also has attempted to reach her, but her daughter said Kolotnytska is not speaking to reporters.
Kolotnytska gained notoriety in November after WikiLeaks released a cable from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli describing Gadhafi's almost obsessive reliance on her.
The cable, under the subject line "A glimpse into Libyan leader [Moammar Gadhafi's] eccentricities," described Kolotnytska as a 38-year-old "voluptuous blonde." It discussed the lengths the Libyan leader would go to ensure that Kolotnytska traveled with him, saying that only she "knows his routine," and it also touched on rumors of a romantic relationship.
According to Ukraineâ€™s Channel 5, Kolotnytska arrived in Kiev on Sunday morning on a plane that evacuated more than 100 Ukrainians from Libya's capital, Tripoli. Relatives met her at the Kiev airport and took her Brovary.
Russian TV footage showed she briefly stepped out of the apartment on Monday but refused to speak to reporters.
Charlie Sheen for president of Libya! *will bring his own voluptuous blonds*
Gadaffi to finish out season on 2 & 1/2 men. Voluptuous blond nurse asking for 3 million/"episode".
She must have been paid pretty well(somehow)for her to have stayed as long as she did. But, he's not really that handsome, so I don't see why the attraction...
I bet that the right-wing thugs in Washington are quite happy with this story.
Quite true,Cesar. Those bozoes in Washington are going to milk it for what it's worth!
Shut up Cesar. You sound ridicules. Right wing thugs my bu/tt.
Cesar pls answer the posts on N Africa
You can always tell the fake Cesar because he always talks about the right wing thugs in Washington. And you can always tell the fake RUFFNUTT because he always agrees with Cesar (himself) and talks about how they're milking it for all it's worth. They are both milking our patience, but kids WILL be kids.
Thank you, Phunnie boy. We'll all be aware of that from now on. One problem however,I don't like the right-wing thugs in Washington either!
