The head of Ingushetia republic, Yunus-Bek Evkurov, posted: ‘Our long living man, the eldest citizen of Russia, Appaz Iliev has died at the age of 123.

‘Appaz lived through epochs and generations, raising eight children. He had 35 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and several great-great-grandchildren.

‘He remained a kind and loving an old man who loved this life. I know this myself because I met him several times.’

Reflecting on his long life, Iliev once told reporters: ‘Value what you have and share it with others.’
