MOSCOW, January 14 /TASS/. The Russian side has the names of all the three Russians detained in the Turkish resort town of Antalya, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"We have the names. The Turkish side has given them to us. I believe that we will be able to announce them after some time. "I do not know if the other two detainees had been on a police wanted list. I have information exclusively on one Russian national," Zakharova said.
Earlier on Thursday, Zakharova said that one of the detained Russians - Aidar Suleimanov - had been attainted of links to the Islamic State terrorist group in the Republic of Tatarstan (Russia). Zakharova believes the presence of Aidar Suleimanov (born 1984) among the detainees could be one of the reasons why the Russians detained after the Istanbul error attacks refused to cooperate with Russian officials.
"On August 10, 2015, the Interior Ministry of Tatarstan accused him (Suleimanov) of involvement in the activities of the Islamic State terrorist group, which is banned in Russia, and recruitment of terrorists for the IS. Interpol put Suleimanov on its international police wanted list on November 25, 2015. Judging from the information we have, Suleimanov left Russia on July 26, 2003. In short, he has left the country. The last time he stayed in its territory was more than 2 years ago. These facts are extremely important for understanding the circumstances of detention of the Russian nationals and their refusal to meet Russian officials," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson stressed.
