Kremlin critic shot in Ingushetia

with one comment

This is what BBC News reported yesterday.:The most interesting thing is that he was shot while in police custody:

The owner of an internet site critical of the Russian authorities in the volatile region of Ingushetia has been shot dead in police custody.

Magomed Yevloyev, owner of the ingushetiya.ru site, was a vocal critic of the region’s administration.

The Russian prosecutor’s office said an investigation into the death had been launched, Russia media report.

A post on Yevloyev’s site says he was detained by police after landing at the airport of the main town, Nazran.

The website owner was taken to hospital but died from his injuries.

While the problem in Abjasia and Osetia remains and Russian President Medvedev has again announced that their independence is “irrevocable”,this new murder of an opposition figure (we all remember Politovskaya) shows again the real face of the “new Russia”.
