"The persons who attacked Russian tourists and killed one of them in the Gudauta region on July 11 have been identified. One man has been detained, whereas operative activities aimed at locating the other’s whereabouts and further detention are underway. Suspects cannot not be named for the sake of the investigation," Kilba said, noting that their names would be made public after the evidence was collected.


"I am convinced that the crime will be solved in a span of few days. It is a matter of honor for each law enforcement officer," he emphasized.
