Not all the data gets into news reports. It is not always possible to check the truthfulness of the statements made by law-enforcement bodies.

In 2012, in Karachay-Cherkessia, 7 victims included 5 casualties and 2 wounded persons; in 2011 there were 34 victims: 22 casualties and 12 wounded persons.
