Confusion As Russian Police Claim To Kill ‘Militant’ Recruiter For Syria

“Russia’s National Counterterrorism Committee (NAK) initially told news agencies that the man who had been killed in Nalchik was Zalim Shebzukhov, 29, a wanted member of the Caucasus Emirate militant group who was plotting to carry out terror attacks during public gatherings for the May 1 Labor Day celebrations. The militant was also allegedly recruiting fighters and sending them to Syria, NAK said. However, NAK quickly changed its story after an anonymous law enforcement source told the Caucasian Knot news outlet on April 16 that the man who was killed was actually Zaur Prokopchuk, a Nalchik resident who was wanted by police and who was shot alongside a woman thought to be his wife. “
