Tushayev joined Chechen OMON at 22 in 2008. He later became the commander of Trek, an elite team within the national guard’s SOBR unit. In 2018, Magomed Tushayev was appointed commander of the 141st special motorized regiment “Akhmat-Khadzi Kadyrov” of the national guard of the russian federation.

Tushayev had many decorations, including the medal For Courage, the Order of Courage, and the Police Excellence badge for “fighting against terrorism.” He was also awarded the Order of Akhmat Kadyrov, the highest decoration possible in Chechnya. To give you an idea, deputy head of the Russian presidential administration Dmitry Kozak and former president of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev are the other recipients of this award.

Claims About His Death

Magomed Tushayev’s death was confirmed by one of the captives, Evgeny Spiridonov, an OMON member from the Kemerovo region. The SBU postedvideo recordings of his interrogation. Magomed Tushayev’s death was announcedby the Armed Forces on the evening of February 26 and confirmed by Ukraine’s Defense Ministry a few hours later.

According to the Wayback Machine,  the article about Tushayev was removed from the Russian Wikipedia at about 3 a.m. on February 27. Probably because the latest version said Tushayev died near Hostomel on February 26, 2022.

Ramzan Kadyrov immediately began to deny Tushayev’s death on the evening of February 26. And on March 3, a video appeared online showing Tushayev videoconferencing with Kadyrov, followed by Tushaev’s video address on March 16 (not without some confusion: news of the video address came out on March 13 before they posted the video). The two videos had deleted metadata indicating the date when they were made. Kadyrov tried to make sure no one could check out when those videos were filmed.

At the end of June, video emerged showing an individual claimed to be Tushayev following the capture of Poposna:

Magomed was rumored to have been killed, but was later visually confirmed to be alive and serving near Popasna at the end of June.
