An American in Russian Custody?


I am told by a source that Izvestiya is claiming that an American working with Georgian forces has been captured by the Russians. Here’s the link; as I don’t read Russian, I can’t confirm anything.

Hat tip to CT.

…here’s the translation:

A group of Georgian explosives experts were captured in South Ossetia, among them is an American citizen, an African-American. This is reported by “Radio Ossetia”.

The group was detained in the area around the village of Zar, which is located on the “road of life” – the Zarskaya road.

It is assumed that the American citizen is one of the NATO instructors. At the moment, he was transferred to Vladikavkaz to resolve the circumstances around his presence on the territory of the Republic of South Ossetia.

As mentioned by Rosbalt news service (http://www.rosbalt.ru/), the Plenipotentiary Representitive to the Russian Federation Dmitriy Medoyev already reported that several dark-skinned bodies were found among the corpses in Tskhinvali, having fought on the side of Georgia.

A fascinating set of claims. That’s all I have to say.
