Insider and Bellingcat: involvement of Navalny's poisoners in Kuashev's death is obvious
The law enforcers involved in the assassination attempt on Alexei Navalny had also poisoned the human rights defender, Timur Kuashev, in Kabardino-Balkaria, and were most likely involved in the death of the Dagestani activist, Ruslan Magomedragimov. This is stated in the journalistic investigation conducted by the Insider and the Bellingcat.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in December 2020, the Bellingcat journalist, Khristo Grozev, published the materials evidencing that the law enforcers, named in his investigation into Navalny's poisoning, had visited Kabardino-Balkaria and Dagestan when the human rights defender, Timur Kuashev, and Ruslan Magomedragimov, an activist of the "Sadval" movement, died there.
The special agents whom journalists linked with the attempt on Navalny had also flown to Northern Caucasus before the poisoning of Doku Umarov, a militant leader, in 2013, the Bellingcat reports.
In the case of Umarov's death, there may be a coincidence, but at least three more deaths are much more likely to be associated with the work of the "group of poisoners", says the article by the Insider.
The authors of the investigation have agreed with the version of the journalist, Maxim Shevchenko, who has associated Kuashev's death with the case of the attack on Nalchik in 2005.
Ruslan Magomedragimov was the organizer of the action "Samur is the world's property!" He had also stated that the police had been putting pressure on protesters. Investigators had refused to treat his death as a violent one because they found no signs thereof on his body.
