Prosecutor's Office reports about 170 KBR residents involved in IS

Today, at the hearings held at the Parliament of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR) and devoted to issues of combating terrorism and extremism, Arthur Makhov, Deputy Prosecutor of the KBR, has reported that at least 170 residents of Kabardino-Balkaria are involved in activities of the "Islamic State" (IS), banned by court in Russia and recognized as a terrorist organization. Of them, 59 suspects are put on the international wanted list.

"The 'Islamic State', a banned terrorist grouping, has actually swallowed up the armed underground acting in the territory of the KBR and involved in its activities at least 170 residents of Kabardino-Balkaria. The number is large enough; however, in view of the latent nature of such phenomena, it can be even higher," emphasized Arthur Makhov.

According to the Deputy Prosecutor, the Kabardino-Balkarian Prosecutor's Office has initiated criminal proceedings against 79 members of armed terrorist groupings acting in the territory of Syria, and five of them have already been sentenced.
