BROVARY, Ukraine -- Moammar Gadhafi's Ukrainian nurse has left the disorder of Libya behind, but life isn't peaceful for her in her homeland where she faces importuning journalists.

Halyna Kolotnytska arrived in Ukraine Sunday and is staying with her daughter and her mother in their modest apartment in a 5-story building in the town of Brovary near Kiev.

On Monday, she emerged from the apartment with her mother to run an errand. She was faced with journalists avid to interview her as she was returning home. She exclaimed: "Don't you understand that I won't be speaking to you!"

The brief encounter was shown on Ukrainian television.

A U.S. diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks last year said Kolotnytska always traveled with Gadhafi because she "knows his routine."
