Dadaev said that sitting «for the most notorious crime you didn’t commit» and criticizes the jury: «They pushed, and something understood, was removed. I believe in Allah, all that happens is punishment, maybe I sinned too. Maybe I had cows graze and not 11 years old can run around the woods, to defend Russia. Sitting here for the biggest crime you didn’t commit, a jury reached a verdict. They pushed through, and everyone who understand something, removed. And not you think it suspicious that they thought? What is there to think? 26 questions».

But the Chechen authorities could come to court and say that I was not sent, but the status is probably not allowed. Understand, I am an officer, I’m not stupid to commit this crime right in front of the Kremlin. I was in the military, but at the moment of detention already quit. I wrote applications in Prosecutor’s office, the Commissioner for human rights to the proceedings were fair, but nothing is impossible to achieve, writing back to my investigator.
