As was reported earlier, negotiations with the pirates could lead to the liberation of the Georgian citizens in the middle of this month. However, now Novosti Georgia reports with reference to a sailors' father that they can be freed only by the end of the month.
Pirates are waiting for a ransom. Part of the amount will be paid by the Georgian company owning the ship and the rest of the means have been raised due to private donations.
"The main point is that the state of health of the crew is satisfactory, considering the conditions they are kept in for seven months", - the father of one of the sailors remarked.
"As soon as the crew is liberated basing on the available practice, the ship will reach the nearest port either in Yemen or in Oman where the first aid will be given to the crew by the international forces located in the region in order to fight pirates", - relatives say.
