Blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov reports threats from refugee from Chechnya

A native of Chechnya, who came to Germany in search of asylum, has offered help to the Speaker of the Chechen parliament, Magomed Daudov, who had announced blood feud to Tumso Abdurakhmanov, the blogger himself has stated.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on March 9, after a discussion with Abdurakhmanov, the Speaker of the Chechen parliament, Magomed Daudov, announced blood feud to the blogger because of the latter's words about Akhmat Kadyrov. The top-ranking official promised not to kill, but to "surprise" the blogger. Announcement of blood feud for an insult does not correspond to traditions, residents of Chechnya have noticed.

Tumso Abdurakhmanov, wanted in Russia, is in Poland now. In September 2018, the country refused to grant him with asylum.

One of the Chechen refugees in Germany has offered, on Daudov's Instagram broadcast, "his services" to the Speaker, Tumso Abdurakhmanov said in his Telegram. "He threatened to come to Poland to 'surprise' me," the blogger wrote.

Abdurakhmanov also turned on the YouTube to the Chechens living in Bremen. "You live with this man in the same city. You have to keep such people under control," he said.

The blogger has stressed that "it's high time" for German authorities to pay attention to people like the author of the threat.
