Three Civilians Abducted in Kurchaloy
Local sources have reported that three male civilians were abducted in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
According to residents of the village of Alleroy in the Kurchaloy district, three Chechen men who were engaged in collecting and selling stones were abducted by the pro-Russian regime’s armed bandits. The villagers claim that one driver and two workers went to the country’s mountainous area with a truck, as they usually do. However, they didn’t come back and their mobile phones were turned off. Only when one of these men returned, did they learn what happened. He explained that they were abducted and taken to a detention center in Gudermes. He said that they are accused of providing aid to members of the Chechen National Liberation Movement; but, he was released with the help of his friend. However, the two other men are still in the hands of the pro-Russian regime.
“We have a huge unemployment problem, and people will do anything to survive. Stone collection is a way to earn money, because it is suitable for construction sites,” said one of the residents.
Relatives of the abducted men are stressed out because the fate of their loved ones is unknown and they cannot do anything to save them after they were accused of helping the Chechen fighters.
