Zarema Sadulayeva, the head of a Russian NGO called Save the Generation, was found dead
in Chechnya on Tuesday, 11 August, alongside her husband (Alik Djibralov). The pair had been abducted from the office of their NGO on Monday afternoon. Their bullet ridden bodies were stuffed in the boot of a car in Chernorechye, Grozny.
Save the Generation works with marginalized children to provide them with alternatives to joining local armed groups.
