"Pressa Today": one of the leaders of "Islamic State" announces reward for killing Ramzan Kadyrov

A native of Georgia Tarkhan Batirashvili, the commander of the northern sector of the "Islamic State", also known as Umar al-Shishani, has announced a reward of 5 million US dollars for the assassination of the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov, the website "Pressa Today" reports.

Let us remind you that on September 24, the United States imposed sanctions on two extremist groupings fighting in Syria and 10 individuals, among whom there are natives of Georgia Murad Margoshvili and Tarkhan Batirashvili (Umar al-Shishani). Both are the leaders of militant groupings, the US authorities report.

In his statement, Umar al-Shishani also announced the following rewards: for killing Bai-Ali Tevsiev, the former Mufti of the self-proclaimed Chechen Republic of Ichkeria (CRI) – 4 million US dollars; for the murder of the State Duma MP Adam Delimkhanov – 2 million US dollars, the website "Pressa Today", whose mission, according to the home page, is to cover mainly the events in Ukraine and criticize the policy of Russian authorities, reported on September 24.

Rewards were announced for killing nine close associates of the head of Chechnya, including Apti Alaudinov, the head of the department for combating organized crime of the Chechen MIA. Earlier, the "Caucasian Knot" saw this information in various social networks.

Let us remind you that in early September, the proponents of the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" disseminated a video, accusing Russia of supplying weapons to Bashar Assad and threatening to launch a war in the Caucasus.
