The Ministry of Defense of Russia claims that Junior Sergeant Alexander Glukhov was captured by the Georgian special services and demands his return.

The Georgian side states that the serviceman deserted from his unit in Leninogori district of south Ossetia because of unbearable conditions of service and requested Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, for political asylum.

According to Grigol Vashadze, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, Tbilisi has no intention to hand Glukhov over to the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

According to previous messages, Alexander Volkov, the President of Udmurtia, ordered to keep in touch with Glukhov's parents in Sarapul.

The situation with the Russian sergeant will be considered by the UN High Commissariat for Refugees.

This decision was made by the Swiss embassy, representing Russian interests in Georgia after severance of diplomatic relations of Tbilisi and Moscow.
