Residents of Dagestani Vremenny settlement complain to Children's Ombudsman about lack of warm clothes
Residents of the cordoned-off settlement of Vremenny have filed an appeal to Intizar Mamutaeva, the Commissioner for Children's Rights in the Republic of Dagestan. In their appeal, the villagers complain about the lack of warm clothing. In accordance with the Law "On Combating Terrorism", the regional authorities are to provide assistance to the residents of the Dagestani settlement of Vremenny, blocked by law enforcers. This was stated by retired Police Colonel Evgeny Chernousov, an advocate.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the special operation in the settlement of Vremenny adjacent to the village of Gimry is underway starting from September 18. Most of the local residents left the village in the course of the special operation.
In the nearest future, Commissioner for Children's Intizar Mamutaeva plans to meet Ramazan Djafarov, the Deputy Prime Minister of Dagestan.
Svetlana Isaeva, the leader of the organization "Mothers of Dagestan for Human Rights", has stated she is aware of the problem of the villagers; however, she did not receive any appeal from the villagers.
Advocate Evgeny Chernousov has emphasized that in such situations as the settlement of Vremenny faces, the intervention of human rights defenders is very important.
According to Alexander Gurov, Honored Lawyer of Russia, the former head of the Chief Department for combating organized crime of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the USSR, one of the developers of the Law "On Combating Terrorism", it is not the first time when the settlement of Vremenny attracts the attention of law enforcers. Alexander Gurov does not rule out that some of the local residents may be accomplices of militants, who can "avoid criminal liability after the evacuation."
