The Russian Foreign Ministry on Sunday made public the names of Russian amateur scuba divers who went missing in the Red Sea on Saturday
The Russian Foreign Ministry on Sunday made public the names of Russian amateur scuba divers who went missing in the Red Sea on Saturday. According to preliminary information obtained by the consular department of the Russian Embassy in Egypt, these are Yelena Sundukova (born in 1981) and Dmitry Kapitonov (born in 1979). According to the ministry, a group of Russian tourists arrived at the Beach Safari Hotel in the area of Mersa Alam (800 km from Cairo and 300 km from Hurghada) on January 2 to engage in diving. On January 6 at about 08:00 a.m., three tourists went to an island for diving. At about 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, one of the divers, Vladislav Lukyanchenko (born in 1981) was found on the shore in a state of shock. He said that sharks suddenly appeared in the diving area and the divers decided to urgently leave the area. He said he knew nothing about the fate of the other divers. The consular department urgently contacted the local authorities in order to organise a search operation for the missing divers, however, sudden weather worsening complicates the work. Russian Honorary Consul in Egypt Ali Abuzeid is providing the needed assistance, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported. Simultaneously there have been reports about the death of another Russian diver Alexei Borisov (born in 1978) who arrived in Dahab on December 31. As he had no insurance policy, the consular department will discuss all issues related to the dispatch of his body to Russia with his relatives, it is said in a report published on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website.
