Russian Refugee, Putin Critic Detained By Odisha Police


Amid mysterious death of two Russian nationals including a lawmaker in Odisha’s Rayagada district, Odisha Police on Saturday detained Andrew Glagolev, another Russian who was seen begging at Bhubaneswar railway station.

For the last several days, Andrew was seen roaming near the Bhubaneswar railway station by holding the placard. Holding a placard in which he wrote, “I am a Russian refugee. I am against the war. I am against Putin. I am homeless. Please help me.”

Police said he came to India on a tourist visa, which has now expired. As he does not have money, he was begging for help from the people at the railway station. As he cannot understand English too, no one is able to communicate with him in Russian.

After getting information about him, railway station police officials detained him for inquiry about the purpose of his visit to India and his problems.
