None of the four Russian diplomats abducted in Iraq have any connection with Russian special services whatsoever
None of the four Russian diplomats abducted in Iraq have any connection with Russian special services whatsoever, the director of Russia’s federal security service FSB, Nikolai Patrushev has said. “The FSB does not work in Iraq. It does not work outside Russia at all,” he said, adding that foreign special services had offered assistance in efforts to secure the release of Russian diplomats and were providing on-line information related to the incident. That information was being taken into account, Patrushev said. In the June 3 attack on a Russian diplomatic car in Baghdad by militants one member of the Russian embassy staff, Vitaly Titov, was gunned down and the four other Russians – the embassy’s third secretary Fyodor Zaitsev and staff members Rinat Agliulin, Anatoly Smirnov and Oleg Fedoseyev were taken away to an unknown destination. They have remained unaccounted for since. None of Iraq’s terrorist organizations has claimed responsibility so far.
