Under pro-Russian President Ukrainian Authorities Kidnap Chechen Refugees and Extradite to Death to Russia
On May 17, a news appeared with the signature of well-known human rights activist Nadezhda Banchik at Ukrainian opposition web portal Maidan that for some time, the Ukranian authorities that be states are paying with their Russian counterparts by Chechen refugees.
On April 1, Rustam Danayev (born 1982) and Sultan Khutsiyev (1960), living in Kiev, left the house, where they rented an apartment at Volgogradskaya street 41, apt. 43. Danayev left at 19:00, Khutsiyev – two hours later. Both of them did not return.
According to eyewitnesses, each of them ambushed and caught by police. They brought them home, turned over everything in the apartment and took them away. Since then, friends, relatives, haunting human rights organizations and law enforcement bodies of Ukraine. The same response everywhere: we do not know, we did not see, we do not have them.
Here is an excerpt from a letter heartbroken mother of Danayev, Lili Kutuyeva, to the Internet newspaper Time.ua:
“Rustam Danayev left his house around 19:00 pm, his did not have ID with himself. Around 21:00 pm in people in civilian clothes knocked my apartment and said they are employees of ministry of internal affairs of Ukraine, examined and photographed my ID, inviting the operator shot me to a video camera, and then reported that, according to their information, a man is living with me.
I explained that it is my son. Since their departure, I started to dial the phone number of my son, but the phone did not answer, since then a single day does not pass without dialing my child again and again, but he still does not answer.
Since his disappearance, I wrote statement to the police of Solomens district police department of Kyiv city. I wrote statements to the prosecutor and the Attorney General, alas no replies.
Today I receive news from unofficial sources that my missing son was extradited to Russia, but it is still not clear: how a man extradited from Ukraine without documents, and how it can be either the prosecutor’s office and Prosecutor General of Ukraine know nothing about it!?
I have not received any written responses from these services up today. I beg you, respond to my sorrow and help me.
My son has a child who needs his father, and who every day asking when his daddy come home!
Rustam Danayev has not been involved in criminal activities and did not involve in hostilities. I report this information in order that all would initially became clear. I know that a label “Chechen rebel” is wanted to hang to my son and all that ensues from this. But I am his mother and I am ready to swear on the Holy Book that my son, Rustam Danayev, has never been associated with wars, sabotage operations, etc.”
Rustam Danayev has lived in Azerbaijan around six years and received the refugee status with number 5880 or 5881 from the office of UNHCR. Rustam moved to Ukranie only two years before. Currently Lili Kutuyeva, her other two sons and her grandchild Islam (the son of Rustam) moved to one of the European countries for security reasons.
