Egypt's foreign ministry said that the Egyptian embassy in Moscow is following up "with great concern" on the drowning of three Egyptian university students in Russia, which took place earlier this week.

The three young men died in two separate incidents in the western Russian cities of Ulyanovsk and Cheboksar, both located on the Volga River, the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Egyptian embassy in Moscow is in contact with local authorities in both cities to identify the circumstances of the two incidents and ensure there is no suspicion of criminal activity related to the deaths, the ministry added in the statement.

The ministry expressed its deep condolences to the families of the three dead Egyptian nationals. 

The embassy has worked with Russian authorities to expedite all required procedures to repatriate the bodies of the three students to Egypt, the ministry added.

The bodies will be flown back to Cairo on Thursday.
