Tumso disputes on Navalny with Dagestani blogger

On the eve of Alexei Navalny's return to Russia, Kurban Askandarov, a popular Dagestani blogger, had criticized Alexei, to which Tumso Abdurakhmanov, a well-known Chechen blogger, has treated in his new video this fact as an example of deliberate discrediting of Navalny in the Caucasus.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on January 17, Alexei Navalny, who flew from Berlin to Moscow, was detained at the Sheremetyevo Airport, and on January 18, the court ruled to keep him in custody until February 15, 2021.

Tumso Abdurakhmanov has treated the Navalny's return to Russia as a very selfless act. According to Tumso's estimate, "a wave of Navalny's support" is also growing in the Caucasus. Parallel to this, in the Caucasian segment of social networks, especially in the Dagestani one, videos and posts "designed to bring this wave down" are appearing more and more actively.

Tumso gave an example of the resonant post by the Dagestani blogger, Kurban Askandarov, who on January 16 in his Instagram page suddenly criticized Navalny as a "Nazi" and "Islamophobe".

Tumso has treated Askandarov's claims to Navalny as unconvincing, pointing out that the Dagestani blogger had confused the notions.
