Kenneth Gluck’s life was really in danger, depute chief of Russian FBR, colonel-general Vladimir Shultz said. Saying this, he cited telephone conversation, intercepted by FSB. Field commander Yakub and Khottab’s emissary, who was in one of Near Eastern countries, presumably in Quatar, took part in the conversation, Interfax reports. One of participants of the conversation, who was in Chechnya (according to FSB information, it was Yakub), asked what to do with Gluck.
