A singer from Bashkortostan disappeared without a trace after a search of his home

Blogger and singer Altynay Valitov stopped publishing posts after searches at his home, “Proof” clarifies. According to media reports, he is not on the list of detainees. Presumably, Valitov left Bashkortostan.

Previously, Altynai supported a Bashkir eco-activist sentenced to four years Failya Alsynova. Even before the final verdict was pronounced, the singer and blogger recorded a video message to the residents of Bashkortostan in their native language and reminded them of Kushtau, where the people of the republic united and managed to defend the shihan. 

On January 18, police officers allegedly came to Valitov’s home. Later, on his social networks, the singer said that they had left, thanked subscribers and those who cared for their support.

Now Altynay is being investigated for calling for participation in unauthorized rallies, and his first message supporting Fail Alsynov has been deleted.
