Dagestanian police officer who kept oath at gunpoint to be decorated posthumously
Magomed Nurbaganov

The Police officer Mogamed Nurbaganov, who the militants urged to break the oath and then killed, will be posthumously recommended for decoration.

A cell phone with the recording of Nurbaganov’s murder was found at one of the bandits destroyed in Dagestan. The officer’s last words were "Work, brothers."

The crime was committed on July 10, near the village of Sergokala. As Komsomolskaya Pravda reported, after the assassination, the militants spread an edited record of execution. It did not include Nurbaganov’s last living moments.

However, on September 7, in the town of Izberbash, law enforcers killed three militants. The phone of them contained a video of two men shot in the woods. "One of the victims is the police officer Mogamed Nurbagandov. In the face of death, the officer remained faithful to his oath," the MIA official representative Irina Volk said in an interview with TASS.

The video shows how the armed bandit, who learned that it was a police officer in front of him, is threatening Nurgabandov with a gun and urges him to tell his friends and acquaintances to leave the service in law enforcement. "Tell them, tell these officers... not to work," one of the bandits said.

"Work, brothers!" Nurbaganov replied.

"So bold, must be drunk," the bandit said and shot the police officer in the head.

"In the coming days, the leadership of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs plans to meet with members of Magomed Nurbagandov’s family and personally thank his parents for bringing up a worthy son, he will be posthumously recommended for decoration," the MIA spokesman said.
