Nearly 100 migrants from Chechnya held a rally today in Vienna (Austria) in front of the Russian embassy. They protested against the killing of the Chechen liberation fighter Mamikhan Umarov who was killed on 4 July. There can be no doubt that the murder was ordered by Kadyrov, the bloody dictator of Russian-occupied Chechnya and a loyal servant of President Putin.

 

Given the international significance of this murder, a large number of journalists from domestic as well as foreign media attended the rally.

 

The rally was led by Iskhanov Huseyn, the spokesperson of the Chechen migrant community in Austria. It was addressed by a number of Chechen speakers. Our comrade Michael Pröbsting, International Secretary of the RCIT, spoke in German as well as in English language. He denounced the brutal murder of brother Umarov and emphasized the unconditional support of the RCIT for the liberation struggle of the Chechen people.
