Abduction in Itum-Kale
Local sources have reported that a man was abducted in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
According to the information, on June 22, soldiers from the Russian Interior Ministry and armed bandits from the pro-Kremlin regime in the occupied Chechen territory organized a joint punishment operation in the district of Itum-Kale. As a result, a male civilian, born in 1988, was abducted from his house. The hostage is accused of being a former member of the Chechen National Liberation Movement. His fate and whereabouts are unknown at the moment.
On the other hand, the pro-Kremlin regime claims that they have killed two members of the Chechen National Liberation Movement on June 22. It is claimed that Kerim Matsayev, born in 1991, and Ibragim Dubayev, born in 1989, were killed in their car due to their resistance during an identity check at a temporary check-point in the village of Gekhi within the Urus-Martan district. However, there isn’t any confirmation from relatives of the victims whether they were members of the liberation movement.
