Chechen commander Apti Alaudinov returns to special operation zone in Ukraine after being poisoned
Apti Alaudinov, the commander of the “Akhmat” special forces unit, returned to the special military operation zone, although, according to him, he did not fully recover. Apti Alaudinov expressed his surprise that the investigation into the assassination attempt had not yet been launched.
The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on February 13, Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, announced that Apti Alaudinov had been hospitalized after receiving a letter soaked in a poisonous substance. On February 25, it became known that Apti Alaudinov had been discharged from the hospital. Advocate Denis Shapiro requested investigators to institute a criminal case on assassination attempt after an attempt to poison Apti Alaudinov. According to the advocate, that was the first time when an attempt on the life of a military commander of such a high rank in Russia was committed in such a way.
The leader of Chechnya promised to avenge the attempted poisoning.
Apti Alaudinov has returned to the special military operation zone, the “Rossiya 24” TV Channel reported. As follows from a video report posted on the resource “Smotrim” (Let’s Watch), the commander of the “Akhmat” special forces unit met the fighters and held a meeting.
According to Apti Alaudinov, he continues to undergo treatment for the effects of poisoning.
Let us remind you that analysts noted the attempted poisoning of Apti Alaudinov could be ordered by people from among his affiliates. The analysts also did not rule out that the assassination attempt was organized by the Ukrainian intelligence service.
Apti Alaudinov personally persecuted dissidents on fabricated cases and intimidated critics of the authorities, and in connection with the above he is known in Chechnya as a cruel person, human rights defenders note.
