Amina Okuyeva and Adam Osmayev were on their way back home, returning to Kyiv from a different region, when they were attacked by a group of unknown shooters. Adam was driving, when the attack occurred. Adam told this LB.ua news agency in the commentary – after the surgery at a hospital.
According to Osmaev, the attack commenced when they stopped at a railroad crossing. ‘Everything around me was shattered; the whole dash panel was torn to pieces. I drove as much as I could; they hit the engine, too, and the car was unable to move on. I tried to administer first aid, but she (Amina, - 112 International) was shot in the head,’ Osmaev said.
He added he considers the attack an attempt to kill them both. When asked whether he blames the Russian saboteurs, Osmaev replied: ‘Of course. It’s the next step in the logic circuit, where they already attempted on the life of Mosiychuk. There’s a terrorist group involved,’ he said.
As 112 International reported, Chechen volunteer Amina Okueva was murdered in Kyiv region on Monday evening. She and her husband Adam Osmaev were in the carm which stood at the railroad crossing, when the attackers opened fire. Osmaev was wounded in the leg, and Okuyeva perished. The police and the state security service went for interception; however, as of 11 p.m. Monday, none of the attackers were found.
Okueva, the Ukrainian of Chechen origin, was born in Odesa. She joined the Euromaidan movement, siding with protesters that toppled the pro-Russian government of Viktory Yanukovych. In 2014, she joined Kyiv-2, the Interior Ministry regiment, which fought against pro-Russian mercenaries in Donbas.
The couple of Okueva and Osmaev was assaulted before. On June 1, 2017, a killer pretending to be a journalist for Le Monde tried to murder Adam Osmaev and Amina Okueva. He was inside the car with the couple and opened fire. Then, Adam Osmaev was wounded, but his wife managed to fire at the attacker four times, due to which he was successfully detained. The killer turned out to be related to Ramzan Kadyrov, the incumbent pro-Kremlin president of Chechen Republic.
