Doctors say Ingush President Yevkurov will return to his duties
11:3017/07/2009 MOSCOW, July 17 (RIA Novosti) - The president of the south Russian republic of Ingushetia, who was seriously injured in an assassination attempt, will be able to return to his duties after his recovery, a doctor said on Friday.
Yunus-Bek Yevkurov received serious head and internal injuries when a car bomb exploded as his motorcade passed by on June 22, and underwent a series of operations at a top Moscow clinic.
"He has regained consciousness and is now absolutely lucid. We can now say that the president will return to active life and there is practically no chance that he will be disabled," a high-level medical source told RIA Novosti on Friday.
He added, however, that the president's rehabilitation would take a long time.
