Swift recovery for Ingush president

Dmitry Medvedev has visited the president of the Russian Republic of Ingushetia in a Moscow hospital. Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, seriously injured in an assassination attempt last month, has begun to walk and talk again.

“We were very worried about you, but, thank God you are out of the woods now,” said Russia’s President. “I reckon you will get well soon, return home, return to your duties, return to the service, we would really like to see it.”

Dmitry Medvedev has also said “a big thank you” to all the doctors who are treating Yevkurov, underlining they have done “everything possible” for the President of Ingushetia.

Meanwhile, doctors are optimistic that he will have a swift recovery. Yunus-Bek Yevkurov has already been in contact with his colleagues, said the press secretary of Ingushetia’s permanent representative office with the Russian President, Adam Gazdiev.

“Today he talked with the president of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov,” Gazdiev said.

The Ingush President was injured on June 22, on the federal route “Kavkaz” near Nazran. His convoy drove past a suicide bomber who detonated a car packed with explosives.
