A former journalist with the Ingush news website Fortanga, Rashid Maysigov was taken from his home by uniformed men at dawn on 12 July 2019. He has testified at his trial on a trumped-up drug possession charge that he was tortured with electric shocks. He was sentenced in September 2020 to 3 years in prison. Fortanga was created in 2018 in the wake of protests about a controversial border deal under which Ingushetia ceded part of its territory to the neighbouring Russian republic of Chechnya.
