Fighter from Ingushetia explains his video criticizing authorities by "hasty conclusions"

Residents of the Ingush village of Nizhnie Achaluki recorded a video complaint against local authorities to President Putin while disregarding the fact that officials needed time to solve the problems with water and electricity supplies, Murat Esmurziev, a fighter at the special military operation (SMO), has explained. However, social network users have suggested that he had been persuaded to abandon his claims against authorities.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that villagers of Nizhnie Achaluki, Malgobek District, suffer from absence of water, electricity and gas supplies; while authorities of Ingushetia limit themselves to promises to solve the problem, said Murat (Murad) Esmurziev, a SMO fighter, stated in his video appeal to Vladimir Putin.

Already on March 10, Esmurziev made a statement, the essence of which was radically different from his words in the video; it follows from a post in the Telegram channel of RIA "Ingushetia".

"I'd like to state that in that video appeal, residents of new buildings and I hastened with our conclusions, because ... we failed to foresee that it would take several days to purchase equipment and finish preliminary works. This is what the district head was engaged for these three days after our meeting," Esmurziev has explained.

Some Instagram* commentators have suggested that Esmurziev was persuaded to abandon his claims against officials. Other users supported the villagers' discontent.

*On March 21, 2022, the Tverskoi Court of Moscow banned the activities in Russia of the Meta Company, owning the Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, in connection with extremist activities.
