Attempt on Chechen blogger Lomaev failed in Finland

Musa Lomaev, a blogger, has stated that Finnish law enforcers arrested a suspect of attempting on his life. According to the 1ADAT Telegram Channel, Chechen authorities had promised half a million US dollars for Lomaev's head.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Lomaev left Chechnya fearing persecution. Before that, in May 2004, law enforcers kidnapped him from his home in Grozny and tortured, demanding that he self-slandered. On March 30, 2005, the Chechen Supreme Court (SC) found Lomaev innocent.

The suspect of attempting on Lomaev was detained on September 10. According to Lomaev, law enforcers took him under protection, but for the time of the investigation limited his activity on the YouTube channel, where the blogger criticizes Chechen authorities, the "Kavkaz.Realii" reports.

Let us note here that in August, Ramzan Kadyrov announced the creation of a national agency to help "good" Chechens in Europe who would "watch their language."
