Chechnyas Police Find Umarovs Shelter
A shelter, where one of the most powerful warlords and Ichkerias Vice President Doku Umarov was spending a lot of time recently, has been finally spotted in Chechnya. Umarovs headquarters were arranged in the very center of a big village near the police office.
Umarovs shelter was spotted in the yard at 69 Lenin St., Assinovskaya-village, Chechnya. It was equipped as real battle headquarters, said Mokhadi Israilov from the Sunzhensky district department of police.

It is a spacious basement dug at full height of a man and equipped with ventilation wells and underpasses, Israilov said adding it would be enough for between 15 and 20 men. The cave had electricity from the nearby power line, while the food was prepared at the electric hot plate last used just a few days ago.

The enforcement officers of Chechnya say Doku Umarov has been hiding exactly in this shelter recently. No one could have thought that headquarters of one of the most powerful field commanders of Chechen militants could be operating near the village police. Umarov, who managed to escape in time, didnt go to mountains but is hiding in a similar shelter in the immediate vicinity, the officers are sure.
