Arthur Getagazhev (Russian: Артур Гатагажев), also known as Emir Abdullah or Ubaydullakh,[1] is an Islamist militant leader in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia.

Active in the Insurgency in Ingushetia from at least 2009[2] , Getagazhev has been credited for many attacks in Ingushetia including the assassination of the Ingushetia head of security Akhmet Kotiev.

Following the killing of Dzhamaleyl Mutaliyev (alias Emir Adam) by Russian security forces on 21 May 2013, Doku Umarov, leader of the Caucasus Emirate, appointed Getagazhev as the new head of the Vilayat Galgaycho rebels.[2][3]
