He had been stabbed repeatedly in the neck. A 43-year-old Mamikhan Umarov, also Kadyrov’s critic, was shot dead on July 4 in a parking lot next to a shopping center in the Vienna suburb of Gerasdorf.

A suspect, who was also identified by Austrian authorities only as a Russian citizen, was captured several hours later about 200 kilometers west of the capital in Linz following a large-scale police manhunt. Police arrested a second Russian man on July 5 whom they initially thought was a witness.

Last year, a former Chechen rebel commander Zalimkhan Khangoshvili was shot twice in the head in a targeted killing in Berlin’s Kleiner Tiergarten. The suspected assassin is Russian.

  • Kadyrov is an animal just like his tiny platform shoes wearing boss in the Kremlin. They can dish out kidnappings, torture, extrajudicial killings, beheadings, stonings and lies. But if you even begin to criticize them, you should die. They call themselves leaders but have skin so thin that there is no reality in their lives. I wish good health to this man that speaks the truth. God knows Moskovia could use it.

  • Another attempt on the life of a mobster critic.
    And, Europe sleeps, and blathers empty words, and expels little fish from their countries as retribution but suck bigger fish cock behind the scenes.
    This raises a question: When will one of us become a victim? We’ve been trouncing all over this dirty crime syndicate for years and on several platforms. Surely, we must attract some attention. Not that I want to become a victim. But, I will never give up either, fighting all of this filthy scum, inside and outside my country. Never.
