It is reported that an undisclosed individual had posed as a foreign journalist and invited Adam Osmaev, a militant from Chechnya, and his wife Amina Okueva, for an interview.

The two have also been linked to fighting in the Donbass on the side of the Ukrainian army. Earlier in Russia, Osmaev is thought to have attempted to plan President Putin’s assassination, unsuccessfully. 

During the meeting, the man opened fire at Osmaev, who sustained the gunshot wound. Okueva retrieved her own pistol and managed to shoot at her husband’s offender in response. He is also wounded.

Both victims were hospitalized.
