In the Republic of Dagestan, in July, August, and September 2012, at least 204 persons fell victim to the armed conflict. Of these, 147 persons were killed and 57 were wounded. These are the results of calculations of the "Caucasian Knot" based on own materials of the edition and information from open sources.

The death toll includes 27 civilians, 40 power agents, and 80 persons, who, according to the law enforcement agencies, were involved in the activities of illegal armed formations (IAFs).
