GROZNY, December 4. /TASS/. Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov has said that the CIA was behind the beheading of Magomed Khasiev who was executed by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group (outlawed in Russia).
"Magomed Khasiev’s murder is a propaganda campaign of the Satanic gang and its patrons from among the Western intelligence agencies. We have no grounds for saying that that he was an intelligence officer. There is every likelihood that he was lured into IS ranks by deceit," Kadyrov wrote on his social network page.
"Upon arrival, having seen the true face of bandits, he could - either privately or in a telephone conversation - to express his opinion about them. Probably, that was what cost Magomed his life. We may say with some degree of confidence that the CIA’s hand was at work here," the Chechen leader said.
He recalled that terrorists brutally beat their accomplices trying to extort a confession and then executed them. Similar practices were used by international terrorists who operated in Chechnya.
Magomed Khasiev who was Yevgeny Yudin until 2012 was born in the Chelyabinsk region (in Russia’s Ural Mountains) and was later adopted by a Chechen woman from whom he got his surname. According to Kadyrov, he lived in Maykop, the capital of the North Caucasus republic of Adygea, for the past three years.
According to unconfirmed reports, his supposed killer was identified as an ethnic Russian, a resident of the Siberian city of Noyabrsk.
"We will make every effort to establish the truth. If he was not an IS militant, those responsible for his execution will be deservedly punished there where they expect it the least," the Chechen leader added.
