Kadyrov’s critic was murdered in Sweden. His brother was hidden by the secret services – World – News

Chechen opposition blogger Tumso Abdurachmanov, considered one of the main critics of the ruler of autonomous Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, was murdered in Swedish exile. Rádio Sloboda announced this with reference to his colleagues. The Swedish authorities have not yet commented on the matter. According to the radio station, Abdurachmanov was shot on the night of December 1-2.

First, information appeared in the media and on social networks that the blogger was missing and that he published the last post on the Internet on November 30. Journalists did not manage to contact his brother Muchammad Abdurachmanov either. According to unconfirmed reports on social media, Muchammad was hidden by the secret services after Tumsa was shot dead by a group of persons.

Internet columnist and dissident Abdurachmanov officially received political asylum in Sweden last October, the Ukrainian agency Unian recalled.

Kadyrov, who has ruled Russia’s Chechnya as president since 2007, is repeatedly linked in the media to political murders, whether of his opponents or critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The “Chechen trace” figured in the cases of the murdered journalist Anna Polititkovska and the former vice-president of the Russian government, opposition leader Boris Nemtsov; in both cases, Russian courts convicted hitmen from Chechnya, but the masterminds of the crimes remained untouchable, according to critics of Russian conditions.

Kadyrov blamed foreign intelligence

Last August, a man of Chechen origin was sentenced to life in Austria, accused of the murder of Kadyrov’s critic, which happened the year before last July near Vienna. According to the court, a 48-year-old man shot his compatriot five years younger with six shots from a pistol. One shot was fired from close range to the head. The murder happened in an industrial zone in Gerasdorf, near Vienna. Experts found traces of the victim’s blood and no traces of gunpowder on the accused’s clothes.

Shortly after the murder, Kadyrov claimed that the crime was first committed by foreign intelligence services to smear his name.

The AP agency recalled at the time that critics of the Chechen government faced several attacks abroad. The blogger Imran Aliyev, who criticized Kadyrov on the YouTube platform, was murdered in Lille, France, in February last year.
