Kadyrov's assassination

On May 9, 2004, an explosion ripped through VIP seating at a "Dinamo" stadium during a mid-morning Victory Day parade in the capital Grozny, killing Kadyrov, two of his bodyguards, the Chairman of the Chechen State Council, a Reuters journalist, and others, as many as a dozen. 56 others were wounded, including General Valery Baranov, the commander of Russian forces in Chechnya. Early reports (New York Times) asserted that the bomb had been built into the concrete of a supporting column during recent repairs. In the immediate aftermath, Putin announced that Sergei B.
