According to CNN, the Chechen strongman's two horses were among the assets that were sanctioned following Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea from Ukraine around a decade ago.
The Chechen leader commented on his horse's disappearance: "I don’t believe in coincidences. The horse thieves are unique somehow: stupid enough to steal a sanctioned horse and cunning enough so that the police do not find them. I do not believe it."
