"We are ready to negotiate the issue", - Kalandadze is cited by Novosti-Georgia. Besides, the deputy foreign minister underlined that on Russia's part, an inquiry has been made via the Swiss embassy as to any information about the fate of the arrested Russian citizens.

Let us remind you that on November 5, Georgian Interior Ministry officers published a list of persons detained last week on suspicion of espionage activities in Russia's favor. In all, Georgian law-enforcement authorities arrested 13 people, four of them - Armen Gevorkyan, Ruben Shikonyan, Petre Devshiradze and Yuri Skrylnikov - being citizens of Russia.

The detainees are suspected of an attempt to obtain information on purchases made by MIA and Ministry of Defence of Georgia, as well as personal data on high-ranking officials in the security agencies. According to the source, they are also suspected of an intention to expand the spy network.

It is also underlined that the "spy network" was discovered via a planted former officer of the Soviet Army. To help him do his work, Georgian counterintelligence department gave the agent special equipment and software for information encryption.
