Qaddafi's 'Voluptuous' Ukrainian Nurse 'Heading Home'

Muammar Qaddafi reportedly relies on a team of Ukrainian nurses
A personal nurse to embattled Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi is reportedly ready to return home to Ukraine.

In an interview with the Ukrainian "Segodnya" newspaper, the woman's daughter said that her mother has been shocked by the violence raging in Libya and is planning to return to her suburban residence in Kyiv.

U.S. diplomatic cables disclosed by the WikiLeaks website suggest that the Libyan leader is reliant on a small team of Ukrainian nurses, and particularly a "voluptuous blonde" identified as Galyna Kolotnytska.
