In Quarter 2 of 2016, five persons fell victim to armed conflict in Stavropol Territory

In April-June 2016, in the Stavropol Territory, at least 5 people fell victim to the armed conflict underway in Northern Caucasus; all of them perished. These are the findings of the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources.

According to law enforcement bodies, all the casualties were local residents involved in the activities of illegal armed formations (IAFs).

All the five perished in April, namely: the three men, who committed on April 11 an attack on the ROVD (District Interior Division) in the village of Novoselitskoe (two attackers were killed by policemen, and one blew himself up); and the two men, who opened fire on the policemen, who wanted to check their documents in the village of Sernovodskaya on April 16 – they were shot dead by return fire. In May and June, there were no victims of the conflict in the Territory.

In Quarter 1 of 2016, there were no victims of the armed conflict in the Stavropol Territory.

The above statistics cannot reflect with absolute accuracy the real number of victims. Not all the data gets into news reports. It is not always possible to verify the truthfulness of law enforcers' statements; and sometimes new data about the events of the reporting period become known after the publication of statistics by the "Caucasian Knot".

In 2015, the Territory had two victims of the armed conflict still ongoing in Northern Caucasus; both of them perished. In 2014, there were at least 11 victims: 10 were killed, and one was wounded.

In 2013, the Stavropol Territory had at least 17 victims of the armed conflict, of whom 13 were killed, and four others were wounded. In 2012, 12 victims were reported, including 10 killed and two wounded. In 2011, there were 24 victims, including 17 killed and seven wounded. In 2010, there were 89 victims in the Territory: 10 killed and 79 wounded.
