Georgian rule impedes the return of the Russian serviceman, Junior Sergeant Alexander Glukhov, to his Motherland, stated Colonel Igor Konashenkov, Aide to the Commander of Russia's Ground Forces, to RIA Novosti.


At the present moment the obstacles for the Russian serviceman's return to the Motherland are the actions of Georgian officials, in particular, the statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on Tbilisi's non-intention to return the Russian serviceman, Konashenkov said.

According to Konashenkov, these actions provoke the young man to commit a crime: desertion.

Konashenkov highlighted that the commanders of the military unit has no complaint to Glukhov, for all the term of his service he was responsible, committed no crime or delinquency. The Junior Sergeant has served for more than a year and has had four months left before the discharge.

Glukhov must return to his unit and continue his service, Konashenkov said.

He also mentioned that the military commissioner of Sarapul (Udmurtia) met Glukhov's parents and assured that all the measures are taken to return their son to Russia.

Let us remind that previously the Interior Ministry of Georgia spread the video, in accordance with which Glukhov voluntarily left his unit in Leninogori district and yielded to Georgian police. The Russian serviceman told about hard living conditions of the service and his conflict with the commander of the unit. Glukhov addressed Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia with a request to grant him political asylum and to let him live in Tbilisi.

At the same time, the Russian side states that Junior Sergeant Glukhov didn't escape but was captured by Georgian special services, and demands his return.
