Ingush Civilian Kidnapped in North Ossetia
Human Rights Center “Memorial” has reported that an Ingush resident of North Ossetia was abducted by unknown members of the power structures.
According to the report, Ruslan Magometovich Poshaev, born in 1982, was a resident of the suburban area of Dongaron, North Ossetia. On May 14, Ruslan was abducted on the Caucasus federal highway (Rostov-Baku) while driving his silver Lada Priora car. Some eyewitnesses confirmed that they saw Ruslan’s abduction. His hands were tied and several members of the security force pressed him down to the ground. Then the kidnappers pushed him into a yellow “Gazelle” without plates also accompanied by a white “Gazelle”, which was also unmarked. He was taken to an unknown destination. On May 16, locals found Ruslan’s car on the road between the Gazi-Yurt and Ekazhevo settlements in the Republic of Ingushetia.
In addition, Makka Poshaeva, the victim’s mother, has said that officers from the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) searched their house and claimed that Ruslan had joined the paramilitaries. Makka argued that Russian agents seized all of their phone’s SIM cards, mobile phones, and a bank card belonging to Ruslan’s spouse. They also stole 70 thousand rubles (around 1.745 Euro).
As of May 30, Ruslan’s fate was unknown.
