The archive appears to have belonged to Movladi Udugov, chief ideologist of Chechen rebels. It was seized during one of the raids carried out by a special-purpose police unit (OMON) from central Russia’s city of Voronezh, newspaper Vyorsty reports. It is also reported that the executioners’ faces can be clearly seen on the tapes. The archive has been handed over to the experts at Russia’s Federal Security Service for scrutiny.
