In his words, Mr. Gluck was freed without any conditions and ransom, as a result of a special raid carried out by FSB. According to Mr. Zdanovich, FSB has been following the kidnappers’ movements, and broke in as soon as the situation allowed. Mr. Gluck’s health condition is reportedly satisfactory.
