TBILISI, August 10 (Itar-Tass) - Georgia’s border police officials on Friday dismissed media rumors a Russian mountaineer, who had strayed from his group and lost his way in the mountains to cross the state border was eventually arrested and deported.
Border police officials told ITAR-TASS the mountaineer, identified as Dmitry Tyoply, 30 of Astrakhan, strayed from a group of Russian mountaineers ascending a peak near the North Ossetia section of the Russian-Georgian border and crossed into Georgia. In the evening he was spotted by a group of local mountaineers, who provided assistance and alerted the border police.
“Tyoply returned to Russia through the Kazbegi-Verkhny Lars border checkpoint to Russia Friday afternoon,” border police said. “Georgian and Russian border guards signed a corresponding protocol formalizing the mountaineer’s return. There was no detention,” border police said.
