The diplomat said that after reports about the detention of Bakiyev came, "the Russian Embassy in Ankara immediately sent respective inquiries to the competent agencies" of Turkey, Zakharova said.
"As a result, an official notification of the Turkish authorities was obtained about the arrest of Russian national Renat Bakiyev on July 29," Zakharova went on. "He was remanded detained on suspicion of - I am citing here - ‘affiliation with the armed terrorist group Islamic State,’" she went on.
