The latest photos that eXXpress received from the war zone via Telegram channels show the Chechen President at the sickbed of the badly wounded commander: Ruslan Geremeyev (43) is likely to have suffered a serious gunshot wound in the recent house-to-house fighting in Mariupol, which has not yet been fully conquered to have.
Geremeyev is internationally known: according to the Times, the commander of the Northern Battalion of the Chechen armed forces is the murderer of Putin critic Boris Nemtsov. Five killers were sentenced to 80 years in prison in 2017, and the mastermind behind the attack near the Kremlin was not caught at the time.
The fact that the man behind the assassination plot against the liberal politician Nemtsov, i.e. a wanted killer, is now also on duty in Ukraine makes international headlines: The “Times” and the “Daily Mail” see Kadyrov’s visit to the wounded Geremeyev as a clear statement .
Russian social media users also posted video of the urban fighting in which the Chechen commander was seriously injured.
