"At 5:28 p.m. Moscow time, Magomed Tazbiev managed to contact for several seconds Vladimir Rutkovsky, his son’s advocate. 'They beat, they beat, they beat,' that's all he managed to say. At about 5:55 p.m. Moscow time, we were informed that an ambulance had driven into the territory of the ROVD (District Interior Division)," reports the "Novaya Gazeta" today.
