Local Residents Stand Up To Death Squads
According to the website, Ingnews.ru, the residents of the Ekazhevo village in Ingushetia prevented an abduction in their village.
On August 26, masked employees from the Ingush security forces surrounded the house of a local resident named Issa Khidriev. They broke into the house and without any explanation they grabbed him and tried to leave. Surprisingly, about 70 residents of the village took up arms and started to resist the “death squad”. They attacked the thugs and took their weapons and masks. In response to this counterattack by the villagers, the death squad left the village immediately.
After the failure of this operation, the President of Ingushetia, Yunusbek Yevkurov and his Interior Minister, Victor Pogolov, visited the village.
With their intervention, the local residents gave back the weapons of the death squad.
Yevkurov is now trying to hide this fact from the public and media spotlight.
