Several Civilians Abducted in Chechnya
Local sources have reported that at least 5 male Chechen civilians were abducted in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
According to the information, on November 17 a male Chechen civilian, born in 1981, was abducted by armed members of the notorious Akhmed Khadji Kadyrov Unit from the pro-Kremlin regime in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. The hostage has been accused of being a member of the Chechen National Liberation Movement since the beginning of October.
On the evening of November 17, SWAT officers from the Russian Interior Ministry’s North Caucasus Federal District Unit, Federal Security Service (FSB) officers from Russia’s North Caucasus Federal District, and soldiers from Russia’s Interior Ministry in the occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria organized a joint punishment operation in the town of Urus-Martan. Four young male civilians were abducted from a house. Russian authorities claim that all four youths are members of the Chechen National Liberation Movement and killed four Russian invaders in the village of Alkhan-Kala in August of 2012. However, relatives of the hostages say that their loved ones have no connection to the incident and that they did not even show any resistance to the invader forces during the operation.
The fate and whereabouts of the hostages are unknown at the moment.
