Chechen long-liver sent from Baku to Grozny

Tonight, a 104-year-old woman, found in the Goranboy District of Azerbaijan, has been sent to Grozny, reported the Baku shelter "Mother Teresa's Sisters".

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that a story of the woman had puzzled the authorities of Azerbaijan and Chechnya. The woman introduced herself as Madina Alieva, a native of Dagestan and an ethnic Chechen. However, the authorities succeeded in her identification in two weeks only.

"The issue has been resolved thanks to the assistance of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of Azerbaijan, the Russian Embassy to Azerbaijan and members of the Chechen Diaspora," reported Vadim Dombrovsky, an assistant to the chief of the shelter "Mother Teresa's Sisters" at the Catholic Church in Baku.

He has noted that his colleagues did their best for a comfortable moving of the woman.

A source from the Azerbaijani government has added that Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov personally appealed to the Azerbaijani MIA with a request for assistance in sending the woman to Chechnya.
