      Russia promises support for citizens convicted in Qatar
      MOSCOW. June 30 (Interfax) - The Russian authorities will do
      everything possible to help two Russians who were sentenced to life
      imprisonment in Qatar on Wednesday for assassinating Chechen
      separatist leader Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev, Russian presidential adviser
      Aslambek Aslakhanov told Interfax.

      "We will not give up on them," Aslakhanov said.

      "Russia will do everything possible to get the court to revise its
      verdict. Russia will stand for every single citizen, no matter what
      part of the world he is in," he said.

      Referring to statements made by lawyers defending the Russians,
      Aslakhanov said the prosecution did not have any evidence proving the
      Russian citizens' role in Yandarbiyev's murder.

      Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists earlier today
      that "Moscow still believes the two Russian citizens had nothing to
      do with Yandarbiyev's assassination. In compliance with Qatar's
      judicial regulations, our lawyers will appeal the court's ruling."
