In KBR, Circassian activist and journalist Timur Kuashev released from police
Timur Kuashev, a Circassian activist, rights defender and journalist, has been set free from the police division of the city of Nalchik. He told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that he would appeal against the actions of law enforcement bodies.
Kuashev was taken to the Nalchik UVD (Interior Department) on Wednesday, May 21, from a funeral march in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the end of the Caucasian War. According to his version, the reason for his detention was not explained.
"There were also threats regarding my last publication in the 'LiveJournal'; they said that I'd 'feel the echo', without specifying the consequences of any hint," said the journalist.
His last post on the "LiveJournal" was on the funeral march on May 21. "Employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR) had informed some national leaders that I was going to organize a provocation at the march on May 21, namely, to come there with Islamic banners. I declare that it's an absolute lie," Kuashev wrote in the social network.
