Chechen police to be punished for letting blogger fire service weapons
The resident of North Ossetia have already posed for the camera with a gun, but this time she dressed up as a police officer.
Videos were published on social networks in which a blogger from North Ossetia, Malika Dzhikayeva, is dressed in a police uniform and shoots a pistol and a machine gun, saying “Malika is power!” and “Whoever is not with us is not with us!”. A man not seen on the video encourages her. The shooting took place on the territory of Chechnya. Local police launched a service probe.
“The head of the MIA for the Chechen Republic, Ruslan Alkhanov, instructed the employees of Internal Security departments to conduct an inspection, as a result of which the police officers who committed this offense will be brought to strict disciplinary responsibility up to dismissal from the internal affairs bodies,” the press service of the republican police said.
The blogger herself is also brought to justice. Earlier, Dzhikayeva had already shot a gun on video, but not in the police uniform. The blogger has repeatedly ended up in scandals. For example, in June 2018, she publicly stoke up the war of words with world boxing champion according, Aslanbek Kozaev, cussing him out because he, along with other men, did not let Dzhikayeva and her sister go to the mosque at Uraza-Bayram. The men found the sister’s behavior and appearance inappropriate for a religious place. In September of the same year, Dzhikayeva called out Fatima Arabova from Dagestan to a fight. The fighters had hijabs on, Dzhikayeva broke her opponent's leg.
