Police are now desperately searching for the 21-year-old – only named as Oygul M – who has brain cancer. They believe Oygul is planning to enter Russian territory under cover of being a Syrian refugee.
She is currently believed to be in Georgia with a Turkish man called Bulat A, 29. And they are travelling with two other men from the south west of Russia, local reports say.
Doctors have reportedly said Oygul, from the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, may be considering becoming a suicide bomber because she is coming to the end of her life. Oygul’s mum, Barno, has rejected the security service appeal to find her daughter.
She said she is actually married to an Egyptian man and is in Cairo getting treatment for her medical condition. She told local media that her daughter had been sent there by her doctors in Moscow.
