Missing Chechen singer found in Germany
Zelimkhan Bakaev recorded a video about his life in Germany and stated that "there is absolutely nothing to do in Grozny or Moscow. Because there are a lot of assholes."
Chechen singer Zelimkhan Bakaev, who disappeared on August 8, was in Germany. The singer made a video, where he told about his new life.
Earlier, the CrimeRussia reported that Bakaev's mother applied to the police with a statement about the loss of her son. According to the woman, her son left the house in Grozny on August 8 about 6 p.m. and did not return. He came to his homeland to celebrate the wedding of his sister.
A few days after the disappearance of a young man, a woman received an SMS from her son's phone number that he "urgently needs to go to Canada and back." After that, the number was not available.
At the same time, Bakaev's friends suggested that he could not write such a message, as he could not leave Russia because of loan debts. In their opinion, the law enforcers of Chechnya could have been involved in the disappearance of the singer, in particular, the fighters of the Terek Russian Special Police Force.
In September, the mother of the missing singer also applied for to Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov.
There were no news from Zelimkhan Bakaev until September 24, and a day ago some Artyom Lebedev posted two short videos on his Youtube channel, on which Bakaev tells that he has gone to live in Germany.
According to the singer, he reached Germany in mid-August and settled with a friend. In the published video, he refers to a man named Islam, who lives in the Netherlands.
“There is absolutely nothing to do in Grozny or Moscow. Because there are a lot of assholes. Here people are absolutely different - you go out, everyone smiles at you. Absolutely different outlook," says Bakaev on the video.
It should also be noted that there is no direct indication that the video was actually recorded in Germany. Bakaev did not post any other video-appeals or posts in social networks.
After scaring Dagestan with inspections, arrests, and searches, the interdepartmental commission of the Prosecutor General’s Office and ICR has identified key priorities for the regional watchdog authority. After the crackdown on the old clan-based system, the management reforms became more constructive – however, another wave of criminal cases, terminations, and arrests is expected in the republic. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what other Dagestani officials are currently at risk.
