Georgian government will not return the Russian serviceman, lance sergeant Alexander Glukhov, who escaped from Leninogori district of South Ossetia, to Russia, stated Grigol Vashadze, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia.


According to the Minister, the sergeant escaped because of unbearable conditions of service and requested President Saakashvili for political asylum, and the Georgian side will protect his rights and create all the conditions for staying in the country.

Vashadze also mentioned that the Ministry has already turned to the ambassador of Switzerland (acting ambassador of Russia in Georgia) to awake his interest in the fate of the escaped serviceman.

At the same time, the Russian side states that the sergeant didn't escape but was captured by the Georgian special services, and demands his return, stated yesterday Colonel Alexander Drobyshevskiy, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia. According to Drobyshevskiy, Georgian special services drove Glukhov to Tbilisi.

The messages of the Russian serviceman's escape from his unit in Leninogori district of South Ossetia and surrender to Georgian police were spread by the Georgian Interior Ministry on Tuesday.

Drobyshevskiy called these messages a provocation and mentioned that "The statements Glukhov made, might were said under either physical or moral threats".
