The chief bodyguard of Chechen separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov has surrendered to federal forces. Shaa Turlayev, born in 1969, turned himself in to Russian forces in the Ganson-Chu settlement of the Nozhai-Yurt region of Chechnya. According to the Regional Command Center in the North Caucasus, this was the result of a special operation carried out by the security service of the Chechen President and law-enforcement agencies.
Turlayev is now being checked on involvement in grave crimes.
