One of the bikers Alexander Vardanyants told the journalists gathered in the terminal "A" that they had entered Iraq having been confident that they had had visa. "We got problems because of the poor work of travel agencies", he said.
Russian bikers Oleg Kapkaev, Alexander Vardanyants, Oleg Maksimov and Maxim Ignatiev were detained in Iraq on May 20 on charges of espionage. They crossed the border of this country without a visa and ignored the demands of the Russian Embassy to issue it.
The Russian embassy and the Iraqi authorities worked on this problem for a few days. "The issue is being worked out, but the situation is complicated by the fact that the meeting of the "five plus one" on Iran's nuclear program takes place in Baghdad now, and therefore the problem is being solved for a long time", the spokesperson of the Russian diplomatic mission Sergei Cherkasov said.
Bikers have been released in five days.
