    PARIS, March 3 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow will take all possible measures to release the two Russian citizens kept in Qatar, acting Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov told a Wednesday press conference.

    "The state will use all levers to release the Russian citizens illegally kept in Qatar," Mr. Ivanov said.

    On February 19, the emirate's authorities arrested two officers of Russian secret services who were on a business trip in Doha, and charged them with involvement in the murder of ex-Chechen president Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev.
