Novaya Gazeta journalist Elena Milashina was sent on a business trip outside the Russian Federation. This was reported on the publication’s website.
“The editors have decided to send Elena Milashina on a business trip outside the Russian Federation,” the report says.
It is indicated that Milashina adheres to the security protocols that were approved by the editors. The report says that her whereabouts will not affect the coverage of human rights in Chechnya.
On January 24, the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, in his personal Telegram channel, called the former judge of the Supreme Court of the republic, Saidi Yangulbaev, who left Russia, “the embodiment of betrayal” and promised to find him. He also added that human rights activist Igor Kalyapin and Milashina are terrorists who make money on the topic of Chechens.
