Who is Russian Special commander Apti Alaudinov, poisoned recently?

The leader of the Russian region of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, denounced on Monday an assassination attempt against his adviser and commander of the Ajmat special forces, Apti Aaudinov, who had been poisoned “a few days ago.”

Kadirov, who has described Alaudinov as “a dear brother” and “a hero of Russia”, has stressed through a message on his Telegram account that “he is fine” and that “nothing threatens his life and health”.

Thus, he has detailed that an Alaudinov assistant received an envelope on February 8 with “a message for the general.” “The letter was saturated with a poisonous substance,” he said, before adding that his adviser “understood the situation from the caustic smell and took action in time by washing her hands and nasal cavity.”

“His assistants who were in contact with the envelope did the same. The poisoned were admitted to the medical battalion where, thanks to the competent actions of the doctors, one of whom is a professional toxicologist, serious consequences were avoided,” he specified.

Kadirov has indicated that the three are hospitalized in a clinic in the capital, Moscow, where “doctors carry out the necessary procedures.” “The specialists have taken samples of the biological materials for analysis and identification of the poisonous substance.”

“In parallel, there is an investigation into this assassination attempt and to identify those involved,” he said, before wishing Alaudinov and his advisers a “quick recovery.” Kadirov, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has strongly backed the invasion of Ukraine and recently called for jihad to defeat “Satanism” from the West “acting freely” against Russia.
