Concealing the murder

The document States that they met at that time, when investigators searched in Chechnya Eremeev and his driver, Ruslan Muhudinov, which, according to the investigative Committee, planned the assassination. The meeting is confirmed by entries in the accounts of Kadyrov in social networks.
