Network users doubt the release of Chechen blogger
Ayub Vakhaevich, a native of Chechnya, has posted the first video clip after his disappearance, in which he assures that he is at large and everything is OK with him. Commentators have treated the video as staged one and doubted that the blogger was really at large.
On July 29, the blogger, Tumso Abdurakhmanov, announced Ayub's release in his Telegram channel entitled "Abu-Saddam Shishani". On the following day, Tumso published a link to Ayub Vakhaevich's first video after his release.
In the video, the blogger is standing near the highway. "I am near my native village of Bachi-Yurt. They write all sorts of things about me, that I disappeared. I am at home. Everything is fine with me," he said in the video.
Some users have doubted that the blogger was really at large. "For some reason I think he was forced to record this video," the user Abu Abdullax1 has written. "It looks like a staged video clip. He quickly reported and turned off the camera," the user baltes has written. "Everyone understands that the man was under pressure, and he was forced to record this video after his disappearance became known!" the user Dimar Schitikovs has concluded.
