    MOSCOW, April 8, 2004. (RIA Novosti) -- The Russian foreign ministry believes it is necessary that Russian secret services participate in the investigation of the attempt on the life of Major-General Alexander Studenikin, commander of the Group of Russian Forces in the Caucasus.

    "I think the attempt was committed by those forces in Georgia, which are not interested in the development of the Russo-Georgian relations. We believe the Russian secret services should actively participate in the investigation," spokesman for the Russian foreign ministry Alexander Yakovenko said at a press conference in RIA Novosti.

    He reminded all those present that the Georgian side received such proposal. "We think this proposal will be realised," Mr. Yakovenko concluded.

    An attempt on the life of Mr. Studenikin was committed on April 6 in Tbilisi. An explosive device, embedded into a living house's wall, went off when the general was near it. Mr. Studenikin was minimally wounded, and his life is out of danger.
