MOSCOW, June 5. /TASS/. The Russian Interior Ministry on Friday confirmed reports that missing Moscow student Varvara Karaulova has been detained in Turkey.
Karaulova, 19, was detained "in the city of Kilis while trying to cross the Turkish-Syrian border" and is currently staying at the Turkish migration agency, a ministry spokesman told TASS.
Varvara Karaulova, a student of the Moscow State University, went missing on May 27 and later left for Istanbul.
Her family's lawyer said on Tuesday he believed the girl had been taken away from Russia by Islamic State recruiters.
The search for the missing student was successful "due to the immediate involvement of all Interpol instruments and coordinated actions of the Turkish and Russian law enforers," the ministry said.
A spokesman for the Russian embassy in Turkey said she had been detained on June 4. "The student's parents had already been informed," he said.
