Blogger Alibekov suspected of using violence against policeman

Askhabali Alibekov, a native of Dagestan, an author of the “Wild Paratrooper” YouTube channel, who is serving an arrest in Kazan, is suspected of using violence against a policeman, his advocate reports.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that in Kazan, a court arrested Askhabali Alibekov for 15 days. An ambulance was called for him to the courtroom because of a suspected brain concussion. Askhabali Alibekov stated he came to Kazan to submit an application to the election commission to become an observer at the presidential election.

On March 23, 2023, Askhabali Alibekov was sentenced to a year and two months of imprisonment. The court recognized that the video posted by the blogger on his YouTube channel discredited the Russian Army. On November 10, 2023, it became known that Askhabali Alibekov was released.

According to the investigators’ version, he hit the policeman in a leg, the human rights project “OVD-Info”* reports.

Askhabali Alibekov stated that in addition to the case of using violence against a public officer, cases on insulting a public officer and discrediting the Russian Army could be also instituted against him.
