The embattled Libyan leader’s favorite nurse Galyna Kolotnytska has returned home to Ukraine, local media reported on Sunday.
Kolotnytska was among 185 people who were evacuated by plane sent by Ukraine’s Defense Ministry to Libya on Sunday.
Shortly after her arrival, the Ukrainian nurse came to see her daughter Tatyana, who lives near Kiev, Channel Five said.
Ukrainian authorities have ordered the evacuation of Ukrainian nationals amid the violent unrest in Libya. Many Ukrainian doctors remain in the country and refuse to return home because they have not collected their wages.
WikiLeaks described Kolotnytska, 38, as a ‘voluptuous blonde’ who follows Muammar Gaddafi in his trips. Gaddafi appears to be reliant on his long-time nurse, as she “knows his routine,” the whistleblowing website said citing leaked U.S. cables.
Earlier media reports said the blonde, who is believed to be Gaddafi’s lover, had no plans to leave the country as she appeared to be at the side with the embattled Libyan leader who is losing his grip on power.
