The President of Russia’s Republic of Ingushetia, Murat Zyazikov, seems to be trying to lay the blame for the murder of Magomed Yevloyev, owner of the independent news portal, Ingushetiya.ru, on his Minister of Interior, Musa Medov.
A person came to the house of the Yevloyevs to pass on a message from Zyazikov, saying he had nothing to do with Yevloyev’s murder. The person relayed the words of Zyazikov: “Musa Medov was behind Magomed Yevloyev’s murder, deal with him.”
In the meantime, Medov’s bodyguards are resigning from their functions, so as to indicate that they were not involved in Yevloyev’s murder. Earlier, Yevloyev’s relatives and close friends called on those of Medov’s bodyguards who were not involved in the murder to resign.
