Abductions Continue in Chechnya
Local sources and the Human Rights Center “Memorial” have reported that two male civilians were abducted by armed thugs from the pro-Russian regime in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
According to Memorial, on September 2, Ruslan Magomedovich Abdurakhmanov, born in 1983, was abducted near 63 Pervomayskaya Street in the city of Grozny. While Ruslan and his friends were standing near a building, armed Kadyrovites in masks approached them in a silver colored “Lada Prioea” car without plate numbers. They took Ruslan, put him into the car without explaining anything and drove away in an unknown direction. His brother Bulat said that Ruslan had been abducted in 2010 and he had been charged with alleged participation in the Chechen mujahedeen. But in April 2011, he was released. Relatives have asked for help in finding Ruslan.
According to local sources, on September 13, Russian invaders and their local collaborators organized a punishment operation in the Sunzha district of the country. During their operation they abducted a male civilian, born in 1982, from his house. Pro-Russian officers claim that their hostage is a former member of the Chechen mujahedeen from 2003.
As of September 16, 2011 the whereabouts and fates of both hostages are unknown.
