Crimes of Zelimkhan Agmerzoev:
According to Russian media, Zelimkhan Agmerzoev is involved in the murder of a Grozny resident Movsar Umarov. He was kidnapped by security forces in 2020, after which Umarov was never seen again. The local publication 1ADAT reported that Agmerzoyev and three other Chechen law enforcers were guilty of killing a civilian.
It is noteworthy that the authorities of the Chechen Republic did not punish Agmerzoev, but encouraged him in every possible way. This shows that Kadyrov is personally covering up for the murderer. And this is not surprising, given Agmerzoev’s close ties with Chechen leaders.
It was due to his corrupt connections with the Chechen leadership that Zelimkhan Agmerzoev was allowed to organize criminal activities in the occupied territories of Zaporizhzhya region. Namely in Melitopol district.
According to Evocation.info, Agmerzoev organized torture chambers in the occupied territories and also engaged in extortion of money. Ukrainian law enforcers are already aware of this character. Therefore, we are sure that he will be severely punished in the near future.
