Three Civilians Abducted in Valerik and Sunzha
Local sources have reported that three male civilians were abducted in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
According to the information, on December 16, armed bandits from the pro-Russian regime organized a punishment operation in the village of Valerik, within the Achkoy-Martan district. Eyewitness said that after evening prayers, 24 year old Mikail Dautov and 16 year old Imam Arkhimirzoev, a 10th grade student in a local school, were returning home. On their way, a “Lada Priora” car stopped them and armed Kadyrovites exited the vehicle. They threw the young men into the car and left the scene for an unknown destination.
Imam’s father said that they recognized one of the kidnappers. He was from their village, but lives in Grozny and works as one of the pro-Russian regime’s armed bandits. However, representatives from the pro-Russian regime deny the abduction. The fates and whereabouts of the hostages are unknown at the moment.
On the other hand, on December 17, soldiers from the Russian Interior Ministry’s Sunzha base and the Russian Interior Ministry’s North Caucasus Federal District department, as well as their local armed collaborators, organized a punishment operation in the village of Assinovskaya, within the Sunzha district. During the operation, they abducted a male civilian, born in 1991. The hostage is accused of providing food to members of Chechen National Liberation Movement in October 2012. His family tracked him to a temporary detention center belonging to the Russian Interior Ministry’s branch in the Achkoy-Martan district. Even still, the hostage’s fate is unknown.
