Analysts explain appearance of information about plot against Kadyrov

The information about the poisoning of Ramzan Kadyrov by some conspirators from among his close retinue is not credible, but it could not appear in large Telegram channels by accident. Such a "leakage" may be an element of Kadyrov's promotion, analysts believe.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Kadyrov first appeared on October 13 at an official meeting after a pause, during which information about the plot within his encirclement was discussed.

After the appearance of the information about Kadyrov's poisoning, Apti Alaudinov, the head of Chechen Police, and Valid Abdureshidov, the head of the administration of the Urus-Martan District, publicly swore allegiance to Kadyrov.

In many ways, the information about Kadyrov's poisoning looks like deliberate disinformation, the blogger Rasul Asad, the author of the "Ask Rasul" Telegram channel, has stated.

In connection with the alleged "Kadyrov's poisoning", many anonymous channels mentioned Ibragim Temirbaev, a former Mayor of the city of Argun, who had been removed from his post shortly before, but there were no concrete arguments in favour of Temirbaev's involvement, same as Apti Alaudinov's, in the possible assassination attempt on the head of Chechnya, the blogger has noted.

Meanwhile, the "Novaya Gazeta" has published an investigation into the repressions against a number of Kadyrov's close associates. Senior officials and law enforcers, including Temirbaev and Alaudinov, had criticized Kadyrov and his family behind the back. The former Kadyrov supporters, criminated of infidelity, are allegedly tortured, fired and deprived of property.
