Wife of Adam Osmaev accused of plotting terror act runs for deputy in Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

Amina Okueva, the wife of Adam Osmaev, a native of Grozny, accused of plotting a terror act against Russian President Vladimir Putin, has nominated herself to the elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Amina Okueva calls Russia "a treacherous and cowardly enemy". Her candidacy is openly supported by supporters of Chechnya's independence, including Isa Munaev, the head of the movement "Free Caucasus".

The Russian authorities put Adam Osmaev on the international wanted list on suspicion of plotting a terror act. On February 4, 2012, he was detained in Odessa. In March 2014, the trial against Adam Osmaev was suspended.

At present, the Adam Osmaev's wife takes part in the so-called antiterrorist operation conducted by the Ukrainian authorities against the armed troops of the self-proclaimed Lugansk and Donetsk People's Republics (LNR and DNR, respectively). According to Amina Okueva, she is engaged in the volunteer battalion as a medic.

Amina Okueva runs for deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the single-seat constituency in the Suvorov District of Odessa.

On October 23, during the press conference held at the Odessa crisis media centre, Isa Munaev, the head of the movement "Free Caucasus", also known as the commander of the "International Peacekeeping Battalion named after Johar Dudaev", expressed his support to Amina Okueva.
