Chechen fighter Amina Okuyeva killed near Kyiv

Chechen fighter Amina Okuyeva was killed and her husband, Adam Osmayev, was wounded after their car came under fire in the village of Hlevakha near Kyiv late on Monday, October 30.

A member of the board of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, MP Anton Herashchenko, reported this on his Facebook page.

"The heart of Ukrainian patriot Amina Okuyeva has just stopped. Her car came under fire from the bushes at a railway crossing near the village of Hlevakha in Kyiv region. Amina died as a result of wounds that she sustained," he wrote.

Herashchenko said that Osmayev was injured, but would live. "I have just spoken with him on the phone," Herashchenko said.

The first assassination attempt on Adam Osmayev and Amina Okuyeva, Chechen volunteer soldiers who participated in the war against Russian-backed forces in eastern Ukraine, was made in Kyiv on June 1, 2017. The would-be assassin, who introduced himself as a French journalist, invited the couple to a meeting and then shot in a car at Adam, but Amina returned gunfire and wounded the attacker.
