MOSCOW, October 13./TASS/. Investigative authorities in Russia’s Siberian Tomsk region have reopened a criminal case over the kidnapping of Russian national Konstantin Zhuravlev, who spent three years in Syrian captivity and was returned home on Friday, an investigative officer told Tass.
The source said investigators have contacted Zhuravlev and he has been summoned for questioning. "We will be looking into the circumstances - how he got there and what he was doing there," he said.
Konstantin Zhuravlev, a Russian national captured in Syria three years ago by an Islamist group has been returned home, the public relations center of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) said earlier on Friday.
The man "was kidnapped in the north of Syria by an armed group in October 2013, as he was travelling the world, and was held there by force for three years."
