      Former Sulim Yamadaev's deputy kidnapped by men in masks

      Mar 29 2011

      Magomed Taisumov, former deputy of Sulim Yamadaev, commander of the
      special-purpose GRU battalion "Vostok" (East), assassinated two years
      ago in Dubai, was beaten at kidnapping.

      The "Caucasian Knot" correspondent reports that Magomed Taisumov, former
      deputy commander of the "Vostok", was kidnapped yesterday, on March 28,
      near the village of Novogrozny, Gudermes District of Chechnya. This
      became known to close friends of the Yamadaev family. Taisumov is a
      close relative of the Yamadaevs.

      "The car driven by Magomed was stopped by a group of armed persons, who
      travelled in two Lada Priora cars. Some of them were dressed in black
      military uniform, others - in sporting suits; all of them were in masks.
      They tried to force Magomed into one of their cars, but Taisumov
      resisted. When people began coming up running to the venue, the
      kidnappers opened fire at their feet and over their heads, not allowing
      them to come closer. Then they hit Magomed on his head with a machinegun
      butt; and when he fell down, they pushed him into one of their cars and
      fled," said the source.

      The source has added that Major Magomed Taisumov took part in many
      combat operations of the "Vostok" battalion against militants in
      Chechnya, and in South Ossetia during the events of August 2008.

      "Of course, he might have enemies among bandits; however, this
      kidnapping was organized by entirely different people. These were surely
      law enforcers, moreover, local ones, I'm sure," said the source, but
      could not specify any possible motives of the kidnapping. (*)

      The republic's law enforcement bodies refused to comment, referring to
      lack of confirmed information and applications from relatives of the
      kidnapped person.

      The term "law enforcers" in Chechnya is today synonymous with "bandits".
