Chechen Khalimat Taramova, who was kidnapped by the security forces from a shelter for victims of domestic violence in Makhachkala in June of this year, had previously undergone “treatment” in an “elite clinic” without a license near Moscow. About it informs “Medusa”.
Anna Manylova, Khalimat’s girlfriend, learned in February that her beloved was in a private clinic called Invia Elite, located in a cottage in the village of Kartmazovo near Moscow. Prior to that, Anna and Halimat communicated with each other online and by phone. In 2020, they met in one of the chats on Telegram, when Halimat lived in Moscow. In 2021, the girl’s husband found a correspondence with Anna on her phone, after which he beat his wife and took her back to her hometown – Grozny. Later, Halimat’s husband sent Anna a threatening voice message from his wife’s number.
Upon learning that Halimat was in the clinic, Anna went there, complaining of depression. The medical staff took up her treatment without asking for any documents, and the girl ended up spending a week in the clinic. There Anna managed to hand over a mobile phone to Halimat. In addition, the Chechen woman was able to access the Internet through a TV set in her room.
According to Manylova, her parents sent Khalimat to “get treatment” for homosexual relations. “Father [Тарамовой] said: ‘You will be treated at the clinic until you forget all sorts of An’, – said Anna in a conversation with Meduza. She added that in total, her beloved spent almost three months in the clinic, after which her hearing became seriously impaired.
Manylova emphasized that unknown drugs and droppers were given at the Taramova’s medical facility. In addition, various psychologists have worked with her. “Lima has no abnormalities, there was no diagnosis, they were treating, roughly speaking, from me,” Anna said. According to Manylova, the clinic mainly consisted of patients with alcohol and drug addiction, but there was one patient who was also “treated” for homosexuality.
As follows from the Meduza investigation, the address of the cottage near Moscow where Taramov was “treated” is listed on the website of a certain elite clinic and rehabilitation center Premium Practice, and earlier this address was mentioned by the Invia Premium clinic. As it turned out, there is no mention of this place on the websites of the Invia Elite clinic. Clinics with this name also did not have valid licenses for medical activities.
Recall that 22-year-old Chechen woman Khalimat Taramova fled from Chechnya to Dagestan on June 4. In Makhachkala, she took refuge in an apartment for women subjected to domestic violence, where on June 10 broke in security officials. Later, Khalimat Taramova and her partner Anna Manylova were forcibly taken to the Chechen Republic.
In mid-June, the Chechen TV channel Grozny aired a special report about the “attempted kidnapping” of Taramova. In the video, Halimat claimed that she was not in any danger. “I am with my family. I’m fine. There is no pressure in my direction, everyone supports me, calms me down, ”Halimat said to the camera.
At the moment, the whereabouts of Taramova are unknown. According to a message posted on the Baza Telegram channel, on July 31, she made repeated escape, however, she was tracked by cameras and caught on the border of Chechnya and Dagestan. Human rights activists, in turn, question the reliability of this information and fear that the girl may already be dead.
