He was a native of Dagestan, who served on the of "Kursk" submarine. The military council says in its announcement that the sailor of the submarine had gone on his mission already in June, with the help of a close Dagestan friend of his, with whom he shared his desire to help the muslims of Chechnya and Dagestan in their struggle against the Russian empire. The sailor had informed that he has access to the secret military-naval engineering and can, in case of good luck, sink the the submarine. He especially emphasized his readiness to face death for the sake of Allah and for the sake of helping his Islamic brothers. He insisted that his name would not be mentioned as he wanted to do this act only for the sake of Allah, not for the sake of glory. The military council of mujahideen emphasizes that it gives this statement only after certainty about destruction of all the crew, and after the risk that the Dagestan hero would get in hands of the Kremlin regime is completely excluded. The Chechen sources inform that Dagestan shaheed of "Kursk" was hereditary a submarine sailor. One of his nearest relatives served on submarines of the Northern fleet during the 2 world wars. According to some information this was Gadzhiyev Magomed, who became a Hero of the Soviet Union having personally sunk some German ships. He is said to have had brothers who also had direct relation to the USSR marine sea fleet and lived in the Northern sea region. Complete failure with performance of elections
