Correspondent of the Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda was handed over to the Russian Embassy in Georgia
Correspondent of the Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda Nikolai Varsegov who was detained in Georgia for border transgression was handed over to the Russian Embassy in Georgia. Varsegov was brought to the Russian Embassy in Tbilisi, and, according to the Russian diplomatic mission, “will fly to Moscow on the soonest flight.” The Komsomolskaya Pravda correspondent was detained in the Zugdidi region on Thursday where he was staying without an entry visa. Varsegov told journalists that he was on a mission in Abkhazia, from where on April 13 he came to a bridge across the Inguri River that divides the districts controlled by Georgia and Abkhazia. “Upon crossing the bridge I asked servicemen at a Georgian checkpoint whether I can get a Georgian visa from them, but received a negative answer. When I was going to return in the district controlled by Abkhazia I was detained and brought to Tbilisi,” Varsegov said. No criminal proceedings were instituted against the Russian journalist, an official at the Georgian Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass.
