Abubakar Udziev, killed today in Gubden, was the leader of the grouping involved in killings of soldiers and civilians in the Karabudakhkent District of Dagestan. This was reported by the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today, at 9:50 a.m. Moscow time, the counterterrorist operation (CTO) legal regime has been introduced in the village of Gubden. In the village, law enforcers cordoned off a house with suspected militants, and a shootout occurred.
