Six men abducted in Prigorodnoye
By Ruslan Isayev
GROZNY, Chechnya – Six young men were abducted this morning by an unknown armed group in the village of Prigorodnoye in the Groznensky (Rural) District. The location of the abducted men (aged from 19 to 23) is not known.
According to their fellow villagers, none of the men were connected with any of the warring sides.
Several members of the president’s security service (so-called “Kadyrovites”), who are friends of the men, tried to prevent the abduction. In the course of the fighting that ensued one of the “Kadyrovites” was wounded in the leg.
