“There is no connection with a group of 25 rescuers of the Ministry of Emergency Situations who carried out the evacuation of four tourists on Elbrus.

Due to the worsening weather, the group split up," a source in emergency services told TASS.

It is noted that the location of rescuers and tourists is known.

In September 2021, a group of 19 climbers on Elbrus needed the help of rescuers.

During the ascent, five climbers died.

Another 14 people were rescued.
