Russian journalist arrested in Iran to be released soon, Sputnik says
IRAN  - Russian journalist detained in Tehran will be released soon, Russia's Sputnik news agency quoted Iran's foreign ministry spokesman as saying on Friday.

Abbas Mousavi, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, spoke briefly with Sputnik in Tehran about the detention of a Russian journalist in Tehran late on Friday.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Iran's envoy was "invited to the foreign ministry to quickly clarify the circumstances" and ensure the rights of journalist Yuzik, 38, are observed. She did not provide further details.

The Russian embassy in Tehran told AFP the mission had requested consular access to the journalist.

According to Andrei Gankenko, Press Officer of the Russian Embassy in Iran: On September 29, Russian citizen Yulia Yuzik flew to Tehran as far as we know. Upon arrival, Imam Khomeini Airport staff seized her passport for unknown reasons.

On October 2, the Russian citizen was arrested just outside a hotel in the Iranian capital.

She added: Yulia's mother said her daughter had been arrested for allegedly cooperating with the Israeli special service. Employees of the Russian embassy in Iran have been informed of the case since the morning of October 4, but have not yet received official notification from Iranian authorities.
