I was given a heads up about this report and checked it out.

It wasn’t until I read this one sentence that the Russian and Chechen connection became clear.

“He was a personal enemy of Ramzan Kadyrov,” said Minayev.

If you don’t know Ramzan Kadyrov, he is not a person with whom you want to be a personal enemy.

I am simply amazed his wife and child survived, for how long is at issue, however.
