“According to the latest information, 12 Russian citizens are undergoing medical treatment in hospitals, five are about to be discharged today or tomorrow,” he said, adding, “One Russian citizen is scheduled to undergo surgery today.”
Topolkarayev arrived in Turkey last night and visited each of the Russian tourists in the hospitals. “All of them said that they have no complaints about the treatment,” he said.
