Double quotients of Lie groups are considered. Using the Thimm method, the author estimates the minimal number of independent integrals of a geodesic flow of double quotients of compact Lie groups with doubleside invariant metrics. The author also proves integrability of geodesic flows on 7- and 13-dimensional spaces of positive sectional curvature obtained by J.-H. Eschenburg and Ya. V. Bazajkin.
