77 Russians Still Missing in U.S.

Seventy-seven Russian citizens remained among those missing and feared dead a week after the terrorist attacks in the United States, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Tuesday.

Although none has been confirmed dead, at least one, Alexander Ivantsov, 23, is thought to have certainly been among those killed in the collapse of the twin World Trade Center towers, officials said.

Ivantsov was a programmer with ESpeed, the electronic trading service for bond brokerage firm Cantor Fitzgerald, which had offices on the 101st to 105th floors of the north tower, the first of the two to be hit.

He worked on the 104th floor and is missing along with almost 700 of the 1,000 or so employees of Cantor Fitzgerald and ESpeed.

A total of almost 5,000 people are listed as missing in the towers.

Valery Ivantsov, Alexander's father, said Tuesday by telephone from the Siberian town of Abakan that he and his family had not heard from Alexander since the day of the attacks.
