Blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov points to contradictions in authorities' version on death of Gudermes woman

Reporters of the state-run TV Channel claimed that the husband of the deceased woman from Gudermes had never held firearms in his hands. However, blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov posted a video to prove the opposite.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 12, the 23-year-old mother of three children died. The woman was buried at night, in contradiction to the Islamic traditions. After reports on social networks claiming that the young woman fell victim to domestic violence, her mother succeeded in seeking the exhumation and examination. However, after the leader of Chechnya had met the husband of the deceased woman, her mother apologized for the statement about the violent death of her daughter. Instagram users questioned the sincerity of those apologies.

Chingiz Akhmadov, the director of the "Grozny" ChGTRK (Chechen State TV and Radio Company), prepared a story in response to the version that the law enforcement bodies are trying to blanch over the husband of the deceased woman from Gudermes. Chingiz Akhmadov noted that he wanted to refute the Tumso Abdurakhmanov's statements.

The husband of the deceased woman serves at a military training ground in Akhmat-Yurt, the native village of the Chechen leader, but not only villagers of Ramzan Kadyrov are recruited there, Chingiz Akhmadov notes. According to the TV report, the husband of the deceased woman never held firearms in his hands and worked as an unskilled worker.

Meanwhile, Tumso Abdurakhmanov posted on his YouTube channel a video, in which the same man, dressed in a military uniform, was shooting at targets.

Tumso Abdurakhmanov also noted that another reporter called the woman from Gudermes "killed" rather than "deceased." According to the blogger, this is not an accidental slip of the tongue.
