    here is a lot of news but in Russian’s here:http://vk.com/club42132446. In English only this from 27.08 :” At Sunday there was a letter to Eastern Europe Caving mailing list about the rescue operation, so here are updates:
    Currently there are more then 70 volunteer rescuers at/near the cave. Tight passages were blown at 0-300 and 400-800 parts. One group is improving the rigging at 0-130 part. There are still some cave divers and cave rescuers to arrive and rescue plan is still in development.”
    Yesterday divers moved he body from last siphon. The plan for today is to start moving up in a vertical part of the cave!
    The bank account is the same!
