TBILISI, August 7 (Itar-Tass) — The Georgian rescuers on a mission to find Russian mountaineers on Mount Tentuldi are approaching their camp at an altitude of 3,600 meters, an official from the administration of the Mestiisky district told reporters.
The Russian mountaineers said in an SMS message earlier on Tuesday that they were alive. "One of them broke his leg in a rockfall two days ago; his colleagues have no health problems," the official said. The mountaineers have a tent and a stock of food. At present, Georgia cannot send a helicopter to the mountain covered by dense fog.
Three days ago, Georgia mounted a rescue operation for two Polish and one Austrian mountaineers on mountain Ushba, 20 kilometers from Tetnuldi. One of the Poles suffered severe frostbites and a helicopter was sent to collect the whole group. The foreigners were accompanied by a Georgian mountaineer. At that time, the weather was good and the helicopter was able to pick up the whole group.
The Mestiisky district is adjacent to the Kabardino-Balkaria stretch of the Russian-Georgian state border.
