Kadyrov calls not to make Budanov’s murderer into a hero
According to the politician, such attempts are “groundless, unsubstantiated, and unconvincing.”
Head of Chechnya called not to heroize the murderer of Colonel Budanov, Yusup Temerkhanov. The other day, Kadyrov personally attended his funeral and gave a speech about the Chechen man’s innocence of the crime. In an interview with Interfax, he said that he did not understand the desire to make Temerkhanov, who had allegedly avenged the murder of a Chechen girl, into a hero. According to the politician, such attempts are “groundless, unsubstantiated, and unconvincing.”
The Head of Chechnya told reporters that he did not believe Temerkhanov was guilty, because he did not admit his guilt during the investigation and personal communication with Kungaev's relatives. Kadyrov called Temerkhanov an ironside and expressed confidence that he would not hide his involvement in the crime.
In addition, the politician made no bones about his disgust with the killed Budanov, saying that he had covered himself with shame by committed a crime against Elza Kungaeva.
To recall, ex-Colonel Budanov was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment for murdering a Chechen girl. In 2009, he was released on parole, and in 2011, he was shot in Moscow when coming out of a notary's office. Temerkhanov was detained for his murder, and the Court found him guilty and sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment. August 3, Temerkhanov died in the colony, where he was serving his punishment.
