Zakayev Leaves Poland

Chechen separatist Akhmed Zakayev, who was briefly detained in Poland on a Russian warrant accusing him of murder, kidnapping and terrorism, has left Warsaw to return to his home in London, a Polish aide said Monday.

Zakayev left the country Sunday because his Polish visa was expiring, Adam Borowski said. Zakayev was taken into custody Friday but released that evening after a Warsaw court rejected the warrant for his arrest.

Zakayev will seek to extend his visa so that he can return for any future court proceedings, Borowski said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
