“Khasa” public movement’s statement on fact of violence against its leaders
On November, 30th the public movement “Khasa” gathered its activists for carrying out a session in occasion of Adygeyan people’s meeting on December, 5th at 1:00 p.m. on the square of Abkhazia.
The session of the activists had been planned to 5:30 p.m. in the assembly hall of "Taxi pool". Approximately at 5:10 p.m. the office of the public movement “Khasa” was attacked by a group of sportsmen and criminals led by known criminal authority Alisag Shoghentsukov with nickname ‘Alikos’.
In the attacked group there were also security guards of Albert Nazranov's (figure, approached to KBR president with nickname ‘Negro’).
As a result of the attack they beat the chairman of KBR Circassian Congress Ruslan Keshev and Alberd Bor. With threefold crisis of a hand, a shoulder’s dislocation, crisis of the nose and a wide hematoma of the right eye Ruslan Keshev was transported to the fracture clinic of the republican hospital in Nalchik. The troublemakers beat severely and professionally: that speaks about corresponding training of those sportsmen - wrestlers, financed by holding "Sindica".
The purpose of the attackers was beating the leaders of the public movement “Khasa” Ibrahim Yaganov, Zamir Shuhov and Ruslan Keshev. Most likely the gangsters had the task "to neutralize" physically the leaders of the public movement “Khasa”, to break down the preparation and to not admit carrying out of the meeting dated for December, 5th”.
After the carrying out of the forum of November, 28th with participation of the persons mentioned above, the leaders of Adygeyan public organizations had repeatedly declared about provocations preparing against them. Members of the public movement “Khasa” declare as responsible for the happened prosecution the president of the republic A.B. Kanokov who, not having any other levers of influence on the public, had started using criminal structures and illegal actions, trying to squeeze out the public situation out from the legal field.
Members of the public movement “Khasa” declare: beside the demands on the land problem at the meeting of December, 5th we are going to discuss the question on resignation of KBR president A.B.Kanokov.
