The presidential administration of Georgia on Tuesday said that it would not make any comment on the issue of Russian spies.

Manana Manjgaladze, spokesperson for Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, told a press briefing that the president’s administration would not make any comment on the issue until further deals become known.

The Georgian Interior Ministry is expected to release on Friday some information concerning the detention of some 20 Georgian citizens charged with allegedly spying for Russia.

So far four of the detainees have been identified by their defense attorneys and local press and they are Armen Gevorkyan, Ruben Shikoyan, Ruslan Galogre and Petre Devrishaddze.

Three of the four are of Armenian ethnicity and have been living in Georgia’s southwestern autonomous republic of Adjara.
