In Cherkessk (Karachay-Cherkessia) at the gate of his house in the cabin of his own car found shot dead an activist of the youth Circassian Adyghe Khase Aslan Zhukov. Here, in a letter to Natpress his friend Zamir Shukhov wrote about the tragedy:
"It is very difficult to write you this letter in view of the fact that Aslan Zhukov was my friend.
On the evening of March 14, 2010, at the gate of his house in Cherkessk was shot dead Aslan Zhukov - an activist of the youth Circassian Adyghe Khase. He was found in the cabin of his car.
Aslan Zhukov, always actively participated in all social activities, helped to organize Adyghe Djegu, and enjoyed high prestige among the young people. In 2009, with a group of Circassians, he conquered Mount Elbrus at expedition in honor of Kilar Hashirov.
To enumerate the positive things about Aslan can take a very long time, but in such emotional state it is difficult for me to do it.
Aslan left behind his wife and three children.
The preliminary versions are not investigated, there will be investigation, and political motives are possible.
I offer my deepest condolences to the families and all who knew Aslan Zhukov – a real Circassian. And may his soul rest in peace".
